Whitwick & District U3A - Strollers

Objective

A short walk of approx 3 to 4 miles taking approximately two hours, being relatively easy although there may be some stiles and gentle slopes. It is hoped that the walks will be led by various members of the group, although there is no pressure to lead a walk if you feel unable to.

You may also be interested in our SWANS or 5 milers groups.

NEW Wed May 19th Strollers will be resuming with a walk around Mountsorrel. Please let Group Leader know if you are interested.

Participants should also complete a personal risk assessment - this does not need to be shared with the Group Leader.

Strollers - November's Walk

A figure-of-8 walk from Snarestone, led by Sue and Ian, including a bit of the Ivanhoe Way and along the newly restored section of the Ashby Canal. Although a bit wet underfoot the weather was perfect for walking. Afterwards there was an optional lunch at the Globe in Snarestone.
