WALKING GROUPS:

 

U3A Carrick has run weekly walking groups since 1990, when a group was formed by Stan Grey. Two members joined Stan on the first walk, gradually growing to fifteen. The formula which Stan initiated is still more or less followed today although recently there have been more than fifty walkers on occasions who have enjoyed getting to know and appreciate Cornwall's wonderful bridle ways, coastal and inland footpaths.

Check our walking calendars and routes, as published on the back page of the monthly newsletter, one month in advance; anyone is welcome to join us on an ad hoc basis. Check out your leader's contact information, including mobile number, where listed and make yourself known! Post Codes are included generally to indicate a nearby location and are provided solely to enter into a sat-nav, in order to get you close to the start! Check the description and perhaps the local Ordnance Suvey sheet to determine the exact location.

 

New U3A Walking Guides:

The Royal Geographical Society, (with IBG) has just published the first two of a series of walk guides created by U3A members as part of the Discovering Britain Design a Walk competition. One of the first two issues, at £3.75, describes a self-guided walk on Bodmin Moor, where you may learn more about five thousand years of human settlement.

Five Banana Walks Group

Portreath
The Five Banana Walk group on a stunning walk along the coastal path from Portreath Friday 10th January.

FIVE BANANA WALKERS: Our Friday walks will recommence on Friday 23rd July at 10.15 a.m.  contact Rosalind for details 01872 865767.

It was lovely to see a dozen members join us for our first walk for 16 months.  We started from Perranzabuloe Church on a circular walk of 4.5 miles and finished with a picnic in their pretty and enormous churchyard, enjoying the peace of the surroundings.
We would be pleased to see anyone who would like to join us.  Each member of the group leads two or three walks a year with the result that we are always coming across parts of Cornwall we never knew existed and every walk becomes a new adventure.  For more details contact Rosalind on 01872 865767.
