Our Diary for CLUB EVENTS


PLEASE NOTE : Club Events will resume from the start of January 2020 :

Caterham U3A events weekly on a Monday morning from 6th January

Monthly weekend ramble from 18th January (with one event per month for the first quarter ~ until I am certain that my knee stability is properly restored).

In the briefing scripts for our events we offer LOCATIONstats for our meeting/parking points, and at times for other places. Included under this section will be the NEAREST postcode (not very precise in most cases); the Ordnance Survey grid reference (usually in TQ or TV 6-figure format AND 10-figure format ~ the latter being more precise); AND the latest what3words 3-metre international grid format. The latter is very precise, can be used from mobile phones, from home computers to check and print in advance and in most cases can now transfer into satnav systems…or in some cases ( i.e. late-model vehicles ) is already included in some way on the inbuilt satnav sytems. To find out more about the origins of this innovative system ~ which is already being used by emergency services, some couriers and more : what3word ~ how it all began (link for youtube.com)

Showing here ~ our EVENT(s) Coming Up Shortly … as follows :

NOTICE : We now NO LONGER plan separate Surrey Weekend events since the start of 2019.  Surrey members for WEEKEND WALKING have been invited to join our Weekend Rambling Group , which now includes all those from Sussex (West & East) and the west of Kent. This is a single, new Database ~ “WEEKEND RAMBLERS 2019/20”. 

This group will offer some activities in the countryside accessible readily from the Tandridge District and further to the west from Redhill/Reigate, as well as the west of Kent, West Sussex and throughout East Sussex.  Walking events will vary between Saturday afternoons, Sunday afternoons and our regular series of Summer Sunday Daywalks.
