Thank you to those who participated in the first walk on the 15th September and for your responses to the questionnaire.

We had 21 walkers. This has given me a better idea of what you hope to gain from these walks. What I forgot to ask was how far you are wishing/able to travel away from Street/Glastonbury to any walk start/end ? Let me know for the future please.

So, I have decided the second walk will be on Wednesday 29th September and will start and end at the same venue. Those that stayed for lunch were pleased with the price and quality of the "Light Bites" menu ...Click here for Menu. The route will be in a different direction to last week.

Details of Second Walk:
Wednesday 29th September
Meet for 10:30am departure.
Start and Finish: Rose and Portcullis pub in Butleigh, BA6 8TQ
Length: Approximately 5 miles

We will meet at the large car park at the Rose and Portcullis in Butleigh just a short way from Glastonbury and Street.

The walk will be over fields on rights of way, and short distances on quiet roads. This one will be somewhat longer than the first and will initially take in the interesting historical village of Butleigh and its domestic buildings..... and will then take footpaths across fields to the Hood monument. There will be a steady climb up to, and decent from the monument. If some decide to avoid the climb it will be possible to end at a point where a backroad goes directly back to the car park.

The landlord is pleased to take bookings for lunch on the day, and has outside, open and undercover seating as well as his restaurant: As before, if you wish to have lunch, please write your names clearly on a piece of paper with your menu choices from the "Light Bites" menu, and give it to me before we set off on the walk.

Just to remind you that all u3a Groups pay to attend the sessions. In the case of this Walking Group, it is a £1 coin please when you take part. Money to me at the start, please.

I have made name badges for everyone if you wish to wear one to assist in getting to know each other socially. Please remember to settle any pub bill before leaving.

I look forward to meeting you again.
