2023 here we come!

Time is running out to book so get your walking boots dusted down and join us for a great weekend of walking, and socialising, this is not Ben Nevis just the Cotswolds so have no fear! The Long weekend walking group are going to Harrington House in Bourton-in-the Water in the Cotswolds from 20th October, checking in from 4 pm till 23rd October 2023, checking out at 10 am. If you look on the Holiday Fellowship website and click on Country Houses, you will see the details of Harrington House.

The price is £425 for guided walks, full board and ensuite accommodation.  Provisionally we have booked the whole house and currently have 15 spare places.  I have been given more time to give numbers and collect deposits.

The deposit is £75 per person due by September 15th.  The balance will be due in August 2023.

Convenor Grace Hunter has now been on two of these Holiday Fellowship long weekends and has been impressed with the accommodation and the quality of the food, including the packed lunches to give us all that extra bit of energy!

There are choices of walks for you, and it is a very sociable gathering which gives you the chance to make some new friends.

If you would like to join us, please let Grace know as soon as possible as time is short, you won’t regret it!

Long weekend walkers 2022

We have been offered as an alternative to the plan for St Ives, if we want a whole house booking nearer home, the South Downs guided walking at Abingworth, which the group went to in 2018.  We would need a minimum of 35 for the whole house.  The cost is £345 per person. Friday  2nd September 2022 for 3 nights.

I need 11 more people to book for the weekend by Thursday evening, in order to keep the full house booking, otherwise, the booking will lapse.

All Chalfont  U3A members are welcome to join the long weekenders walking group at Abingworth.  The guided walks have different lengths of walks, chosen on arrival.  More information will be sent out when we know we have a full house.
