Our group was one of the first to be established when the Up Holland & District U3A commenced in January 2005. Our first walk was around the Lafford Lane area of Up Holland and seven intrepid walkers (including ourselves) set off in the most horrendous conditions (gale force winds and extremely heavy rain), but we actually enjoyed ourselves, and returned to the Fox for a convivial drink and chat. Six of those initial seven are still walking with us. We attempt to vary the walks as much as possible and over the past couple of years a few members of the group have led us on their favourite walks which is very much appreciated by us. Our September walk is always an away day when we travel further afield by coach, taking a picnic lunch and rounding the day up with a meal at a local restaurant. The January walk is our Anniversary walk when we organise a local walk which is followed by lunch. Due to the inclement weather at this time of year we try to keep this walk slightly shorter and more local.
