"7 up" Walking Group

photoThis group provides walks of any distance over seven miles. The walks will be on the 4th Wednesday of the month.

If you have any queries about the walk, or if you are unsure whether the walk will go ahead (because of inclement weather for example) please contact the walk leader.

The group operates a 'car share' to get to the walks. If you would like information about this, or would be prepared to lead a walk in our next programme, please contact Margaret on 266 5816 or email walks@u3aleeds.org.uk.

PLEASE NOTE: All walks will be circular unless otherwise stated. Walkers should be adequately equipped wearing suitable footwear and carrying clothing appropriate to the weather conditions. Food and drink should be brought for a full day walk.

Walkers are reminded that they attend walks in this programme at their own risk, and that they are responsible for their own safety.
