Walking with the U3A

Do you enjoy walking around Geddington, perhaps through the streets or on walks in the nearby countryside?
Do you know more than a little something about the history of our village?

Do you enjoy other people’s company on these walks?

If so, then you could be the perfect person that the Thrapston U3A Walking Group are looking for.

Glynnis Hill, from the History Walks Group, is looking for someone who could help the members with walks around Geddington.  Walks run from May to October and can be on any weekday, normally in the afternoon. Glynnis comments: “Our walks are a maximum of 1.5 miles and 1.5 hours, and a maximum of 20 people. Each donates at least £2 to a local charity or church.”

or contact Glynnis Hill via: publicitythrapstonu3a@gmail.com
Or email us using the Contact Us page, here on the website.

U3A (The University of the Third Age), is a UK-wide movement which brings together people in their ‘third age’ to develop their interests and continue their learning in a friendly and informal environment.

U3A explains the third age is the time after you have finished working full-time or raising your family, and have time to pursue your interests or try something new. It’s all voluntary; a typical U3A will be home to many activity groups covering hundreds of subjects – from art to zoology and everything in between. Formed over 30 years ago, there are now over 1000 U3As across the UK, with thousands of interest groups between them and more than 400,000 members nationally.

If you are interested in groups outside our immediate area, and want to know more, visit: www.u3a.org.uk, where you will find links to regional websites.
