Because the walks will be limited to a maximum of 20 U3A members, booking through the Walk Leader is necessary.
Bookings will be taken in the 1 week previous to each walk.
Our aim is to take pleasure in the exercise, fresh air, local countryside and points of interest as well as meeting and enjoying the company of fellow walkers. Therefore the walks will not be a race from start to finish, but be undertaken at the pace of the slowest walker. Depending on the skills within the Groups, added interest will be gained from understanding the local flora and fauna, map reading, geology etc. Where possible, the walks will finish near a pub or tea room for those who wish to end the walk with refreshment.
Although some walks may be in the locality of Bramhall, transport will be necessary for the majority of walks. To be as ‘green’ as possible, car sharing is undertaken wherever possible.
Please note that each person walks at their own risk.

December 2017 Report: View
It has been another successful year for the group with our overall membership increasing and the
walkers per trip regularly meeting our limit of 20.
The total distance walked during 2017 has been over 100 miles and has included such areas as Bollington, Macclesfield Forest, Lamaload Reservoir, Lantern Pike, Mam Tor, Asbury and Shining Tor. As with previous years, our walks have provided us with lovely scenery, social chats together with meal/drinks in various pubs. Although the weather has not been so kind on certain walks, brave faces and suitable clothing has seen us through.
I would like to thank those members who have volunteered to lead walks in 2017, without whom I would not have been able to arrange two walks a month. Bob Dumbarton
