Chris Wood has passed the library of walks onto me as he has now left Pershore and is living in Swindon.  He has catalogued them excellently into length of walk and into areas, so if anyone needs a bit of help finding a suitable walk to lead for the group, I have 260+ walks to choose from, ranging upwards from 3 miles!  There is no excuse now, just give me a ring!!!!!!!!!!!


Distances and drive times to walks are from Pershore and are intended as a guide only.  When sharing cars we suggest that passengers offer the driver £1.50 for the first 10 miles, plus £1 for each additional 10 miles or part thereof.  In the event of severe weather, please contact the leader to confirm that the walk is on.  Leaders should always attend the starting point, even if the walk is cancelled.

 

Library of Walks

Don’t forget that we now have a library of walks which has been compiled by Chris Wood, See the bottom of this page under walks archive. It is for use by everyone, so there is no excuse that you can’t lead a walk because you don’t know where to go!

 


DISCLAIMER - Walking is one of the healthiest and safest of Outdoor Activities. However neither Pershore and District U3A, nor the Walk Leader/Orgainiser of the walk/s has control of the environment of the walks, the weather, any animals or indeed of any of the walkers themselves, and whilst taking normal precautions, providing reasonable help and assistance as necessary, they cannot accept responsibility for any circumstances affecting the health or safety of the walkers in the party.
Walks organised by Pershore and District U3A automatically receive Public Liability insurance cover, provided the leaders are U3A members, through the Third Age trust. This is designed to protect leaders against claims for damage to property and for injury or death which might have been occasioned on the walk. This is NOT a personal accident insurance and accordingly participants on walks are responsible for their own health and safety and the safe keeping of their equipment, clothing and belongings.
Participants on walks should follow the advice/instructions of the Walk Leader in order to minimise any risk to themselves and should also ensure that they do not endanger any others in the party. To help achieve a problem free walk U3A members may NOT bring children or dogs on a walk organised by Pershore and District U3A.
