The Walking Group is co-ordinated by Annette Linsdell and Gillian Rawlings..

At present groups meet for Tuesday and Thursday walks at 9.30 a.m. at Settle Rugby Club car park (opposite Limestone View), unless otherwise stated, to share lifts. Group members should park carefully on the right hand side of the car park. A clear notice must be left in the car showing it belongs to a u3a member.

All walkers must be members of the u3a and should be aware that they walk at their own risk. All decisions regarding the viability of the walk rest with the leader.

**IMPORTANT: It is required that each walker provides the leader with emergency contact details before commencing the walk. It is also suggested that £1 per person be offered to the car driver for return journeys of up to 1 hour duration (up to half an hour each way), £2 for return journeys of 2 hour duration and £3 for return journeys of 3 hours duration
