Leeds U3A The University of the Third Age

The canal gardens, Roundhay

Strollers Group

The Strollers Group meets every third Wednesday of the month. These walks are 2½ to 4 miles. We try to visit a place of interest en route and usually manage to find a tea shop. Places have included Valley Gardens at Harrogate, Roundhay Park, Ripley, and Saltaire/Shipley Glen. We are planning some canal and riverside walks, Ripon parks, York river walk. Our enjoyment is from the surroundings and the company.

A stroll with a difference, 15 November

Otley town centre

photoJoin us for a treasure hunt of interesting places and quirky facts to find out from the clues on your treasure hunt sheet. All directions given (and we will be behind you anyway) to your final destination. We finish at Wetherspoons where you can have lunch or just a drink or a coffee and the answers will be given.

Catch the 10.35 Otley bus X84 from Leeds bus station.

Dress warm and hope it doesn’t rain. Please bring a pen.

To cover printing and a prize we are asking for 50p per person. So this time we do need to know how many are coming. The distance is only about a mile and the hunt should only take about an hour.

This is an experiment and if it gets support it can be done in other places such as Wetherby and Knaresborough.

Please contact MQ at next U3A Meeting – you can work in pairs, or if the worst happens beat a hasty retreat to the pub!
