This popular Group meets at the Walk Leader’s designated pub; each walk is circular, about 4 to 5 miles long, returning to the pub around 12.12/12.30. Walking is at a gentle pace, though we can’t avoid some stiles and mud!

The first walk was in March 1995, meeting at The Swan in Southrop with a circuit in the River Leach valley; we celebrated our 50th walk by returning to The Swan for a variation of the first walk, and an excellent lunch followed by a skittles match.

We celebrated the 100th walk in October 2000 with a good lunch in The Crown in Cerney Wick; in January 2011 we went back to The Crown for our 250th walk and have now had lunch in 72 different pubs.

We meet in the Fairford Car Park at 0930/0945; a charge is required to cover the Walk Leader’s expenses, normally 1 at the Leader’s discretion and those who require lifts are advised of the suggested donation to the driver, as recommended by the U3A Committee.

A healthy and sociable experience; new members are always welcome.
