Intermediate Walking Group – “Balades”

Co-ordinator: John NETTLETON

Deputy Co-ordinator: TBD

This new group will walk on THURSDAY afternoon with walks of around 2 1/2 hours, 10 km and total climb of about 200m. Walks will be throughout the PO including north of Perpignan, Agly Valley, Alberes and the Tech Valley. This will introduce new walks. The walks will be subject to weather should be every week, however we will need members to volunteer to lead walks.

An email will be sent out to all registered walking members in advance of each walk.

Small print:
Members and guests are advised that they take personal responsibility for their own health and welfare whilst participating in U3A organised events. If necessary, this might, for instance, entail a doctor’s assessment of the level of fitness and/or adequate insurance cover. It is also worth taking into account that walkers may occasionally venture to areas where there is little or no mobile telephone signal making it difficult to summon professional assistance quickly.
Members’ guests may accompany members of the U3A Pyrenees Orientales for a payment of €2 temporary membership fee if they wish to join a U3A event. This amount should be paid to the co-ordinator who will hand it to a committee member.
We would also suggest the following.
1) Always wear suitable footwear and carry water in the warmer weather.
2) If possible, wear some bright coloured clothing to give others the best possible chance of seeing you if we are on road or tracks that may be used by motorcycles
3) Always carry your Carte Vitale and/or EHIC card together with any medication that you might need should there be a significant delay in returning to the starting point.
