Walking (Strollers)


Where and when

We meet on the second Friday of the month at various locations throughout the area .


Other information

We usually start at a pub  to use their facilities  and pre book a meal . We then stroll for 3 - 3 ½ miles with as few stiles and hills as possible, returning to the pub for lunch . The magazine gives details each month of where we are meeting and at what time , normally 10.15am, and who to ring if you are interested in going.

This is a friendly welcoming group for those people who no longer wish to walk long distances .

We welcome new SLU3A members joining us and if you are interested initially contact Group Coordinators Julia & Colin Ford  on 01858 463129 .
