Middle Way Walkers

  COVID-19 update

As u3a members we continue to have a responsibility to ourselves and others to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. This means u3a group walks will only take place after the completion of a thorough risk assessment. This includes a requirement for individual members to confirm that it is appropriate for them to join the group. As part of the risk assessment, u3a members travelling to and from walks must wear a face covering while on public transport (unless of course they have a legitimate exemption). If as an individual member you feel unable to comply with this requirement, then I am afraid that you will not be able to request a place on a walk.
 
Jane Saunders & Gill Shiel, Conveners, Middle Way Walkers Group


The Middle Way Walkers Group offers a programme of day walks in the Greater London area and surrounding countryside, primarily aimed at those who like to walk up to a 9 mile upper limit at a moderate walking pace. All our walks are accessible by public transport
 
  Walks must be booked in advance. The booking window for a walk usually opens on the Wednesday two weeks before a walk, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. On the booking form members are given the option of specifying the date on which they would like to join the walk

  Any bookings after the window closes will be accepted if space is available
 
  We attempt to allocate a space to each applicant, but those who continually cancel may be put on a waiting list
 
  Any member who has not applied to join a walk in four months may be dropped from the group. Please notify the Group conveners if you need an extended break from the walks to avoid being dropped
 
  Dogs on walks. Only one dog is allowed on a walk with the agreement of the walk leader, who must be notified in advance. It may be necessary for the dog to be kept on a leader for the duration or part-duration of the walk. On some walks, for example, those visiting nature reserve, dogs are not permitted.
