Longer U3A walk in June - Update

Thank you to everyone that responded to my enquiry about dates.

Friday is, once again, the most popular day. I will therefore meet everyone that wants to come on the Thorney Island walk in the Emsworth car park (see map, car share arrangements and other details here) at 10am on Friday 15th June.

Apologies to those who can't make it.

Longer U3A walk in June

I'm proposing a longer U3A walk around Thorney Island. The total distance is around 8.5 miles (taking in a pub stop). More details about the walk - including start point and time - here. I've put a stake in the ground for Friday 15th June, but that's up for discussion. Here are several dates that I can make:

  • Thursday, June 14th
  • Friday, June 15th
  • Monday, June 18th
  • Tuesday, June 19th

If you'd like to come on the walk, can you please let me know, for each date, which applies:

  • Yes, I can make it
  • Yes, but I'd rather not
  • No, I can't make it

Note that the Thursday and Friday will provide the best opportunities to see basking seals off the south of Thorney.

That will help me spot the best date and - if the weather forecast isn't good - a suitable alternative date.

Thanks,

Andy

Longer U3A walk in May

I previously proposed a longer walk than usual for Thursday May 10th. More details about the walk - including start point and time - here. I got a mixed response to the suggested date.

If you're not interested in going on the walk, you need read no further.

To see if I can get a consensus on the best date for the walk, here are several dates that I can make:

  • Thursday, May 10th - the original date
  • Friday, May 11th
  • Monday, May 14th
  • Tuesday, May 15th

Can you please let me know, for each date, which applies:

  • Yes, I can make it
  • Yes, but I'd rather not
  • No, I can't make it

That will help me spot the best date and - if the weather forecast isn't good - a suitable alternative date.

Thanks,

Andy
