Amblers and Walkers,
Due to a rather wet winter and spring period necessitating having to cancel a number of ambles, we were hopeful of extending our normal ambling season which usually ends in April. However on a reconnaissance walk on Monday we were reminded just how hot and energy draining it gets in May. Therefore, I feel it prudent to avoid the dangers of excessive exertion in high temperatures and cease U3A ambles until mid-September.
