Walks, 5 miles

This walking group meets on the 1st Tuesday of each month. Some walks now meet at 10.00a.m. depending upon the area the walk is in. Walk details appear in the monthly newsletter and on the board at the monthly meeting. Contact Roger Reynolds on 01773 788 169 for more information on planned walks.

This group was amongst the first to be formed.  Around twenty members have turned out to walk each month.  A different walk is organised each time, members of the group have the opportunity to plan a route or just turn up to enjoy the walk.

Next walk –

Tuesday 4th February – meet 10.00 am top right-hand corner Morrisons’ car park then on to Attenborough Nature Reserve.

Tuesday 3rd March – meet 10.00 am top right-hand corner of Morrisons’ car park then on to Linby.

Since the Eastwood U3A started in 2014 our 5 mile walkers have never missed the first Tuesday of the month walk. The friendly group walk in rain, shine, and even snow. We normally meet at Morrisons’ car park and car share, while some of our walkers go directly to the start of the walk

The 5 mile easy/moderate circular walk is often organised by the walkers.  In the winter months we try to choose walks on firmer paths

In our program this year have covered: Straws Bridge, West Hallam-Linby- Gallows Inn, Ilkeston- Eastwood, part of Pentrich Revolution walk and D.H. Lawrence Blue Line Trail- Bluebell Walk, Swingate-Greasley,  Nuthall- Hucknall-Bestwood Country Park

A big thanks to the entire group for being so supportive.                                            Roger

Our 5 mile friendly group has been running for 3½ years (come rain or shine)

My thanks to all the people who help in turn to organise the walk
