Wednesday Cycling Group – 9th Feb

We enjoyed a 10 mile (16kM) ride in bright sunshine, most of it on quiet roads with some on Bridleways. Little traffic for the most part making it a quiet outing, with a stop for well earned coffee & cake in Hambledon – thoroughly…

First January Cycle ride

The Monday Cycling group had their first ride of 2022 on 24th Jan. Five stalwart members and a visitor rode just over 5 miles in a loop around the commons. It was chilly and in places the going was tough due to some patches…

A superb ride ends in Disaster!

Four of the Monday Cycling Group had a great ride on Hankley Common on Nov 22nd. The route was completely new to all but the leader so was even more enjoyable.  A stop for coffee and a natter in Elstead improved the afternoon even…

This month we explored the area between Witley, Wormley, and Brooks, starting from Church Lane, Witley end.  Again 15 people joined me on this walk. There was a bit of a hill but nothing too strenuous. We had some lovely views.  The path had…

Got a ukulele? Going into our sixth year with fun-filled sessions playing this wonderful little instrument – easy to moderate ability – ballads, country, rock ‘n’ roll, old style classics, etc. Sing along too. I’m not an expert but an enthusiastic amateur who offers…

Why Milford and District U3A?

This question has been asked a couple of times recently and the standard answer is that, when the group was first mooted, Guildford U3A piped up and said it couldn’t be Godalming U3A as that was too close to Guildford – doesn’t make any…

Cycling Group inaugural ride

On Wednesday 14th April we had the group’s first ride, just a short one to start with, Milford Station to Hambledon Village and back via Witley and Enton. We had a successful and enjoyable inaugural ride with a small but perfectly formed group. Nobody…

Murphy’s Law

We’ve all heard of ‘Murphy’s Law’ which, in it’s most basic form, is: “If a thing can got wrong, it will”. A slightly more specific version runs “If a thing can go wrong, it will – during the demonstration”. I’ve know the first version…
