As part of the UK government roadmap for lifting lockdown, U3A group walks (which are considered to be organised physical activity) have resumed, subject to the completion of a satisfactory risk assessment. This includes a requirement for individual members to complete a personal checklist confirming that it is appropriate for them to join the group. Please bear in mind that the outcome of any risk assessment may require restrictions on travel and on the size of the group.
Our programme will be developed to reflect members’ interests, but will generally focus on the rural/urban fringe of London easily accessible by public transport. Some of our walks will be circular, while others may be linear (for example sections of long distance paths). We will also visit a variety of landscapes, including parks and woodland, historic village centres, and canal and riverside paths as well as open countryside and hills.
