A walk , a talk, fresh air, physical exercise and fun is what what you can expect if you join the Newtown U3A Walking Group.

We occasionally pass along ancient byways, and  see history in its original setting. It provides the perfect way to do what U3A members do; sharing interests and information. We are fortunate to be able to do that in some of the most spectacular scenery around, learning  from each other more about the countryside we pass  through.

As the programme and photographs show the walks are also a social event. Members  having  found a liking for pub lunches or afternoon tea means  walk leaders are pressed to look for suitable venues en-route.

Walks vary in length, from about 3 to 7 miles.  

If you like what you have read why not come and join us? New members are most welcome.

Ruth who has run this group for many years has now decided to stand down.  We all offer her our sincere thanks for all her efforts and now it will be a member led group.   Sheena has now taken over from Judi in the role of coordinator.                          

Next Walk:  

The December walk will be on  the 20th, starting in Newtown and walking along the Severn Way led by Sheena.
