Walk Leaders

The Healthy Walking Group invites U3A members to join us on our walks on Tuesday and/or Thursday each week. The walks are not ‘a stroll’, and walk leaders expect participants to keep up a good pace, making a much greater effort than when walking the dog or going round the shops!  Naturally, everyone has a different walking pace, and every walk has a leader and a person at the rear wearing fluorescent jackets, but every walker needs to be capable of staying within these two people.

Our walks take between one to one and a half hours, and start at 10 am in winter and 9 am in summer.  Walkers should arrive 5-10 minutes before the start of the walk. Walking shoes or stout trainers are essential as the walking surface can vary from tarmac to very rough or muddy tracks.

We welcome dogs, but on a short lead walking at the rear.

At the end of each walk we adjourn to a local bar for coffee/drink but this is not compulsory!

You can consult our walk schedule and a description of the walks on the website.  Some walks may be unsuitable for you because of the walk surface or the steepness of the terrain.

You should register with the Healthy Walking Group at a U3A General Meeting or by contacting the Group Leader by email.  This will ensure you understand more about the walking group, and that you receive emailed copies of the walk schedules and news of any walk alterations or cancellations.

If you enjoy our walks and would like to walk them again with friends, each walk description is available on our website.


Please remember: you walk at your own risk. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are capable of doing the walks that you undertake. Please read the terrain characteristics carefully to avoid spoiling your walk and that of your fellow walkers.


Enjoying a drink after a walk in Parcent

The Healthy Walking Group exists, as it says, to promote better health by making the heart beat a little faster and exercising our body. Walkers also are uplifted mentally walking through and enjoying the lovely countryside and views.

Another benefit is the social side of the Group. After each walk those who wish assemble at a Bar for coffee and perhaps a cool drink in hot weather. There walkers learn the names of people and enjoy banter among the group. ‘Does anyone know of a man who can do…….. ?’  ‘When is Sunshine restaurant open?’ and of course there is an exchange of comments about the pro’s and cons of restaurants and the inevitable chat about aches and pains!  Much can be learned from these meetings.

There is a New Year Dinner each January, usually at Satari’s which is very enjoyable and once again Walkers meet other walkers they have not met because they walk on a different day or are in Spain at different times. There is also an End of Season Dinner early in June to round off the season’s walks.

Recent comments made by two individuals who walk with other groups in the area say that ours is the most friendly and enjoyable Group with whom they walk!
