Walks

Walks of about five miles take place on the third Wednesday of each month, usually starting at 10am and lasting until lunchtime. In addition shorter walks are organised in evenings in the Summer, usually starting at 17:00 and lasting for less than two hours. Most participants then have a meal in the nearby pub. Details of these walks are usually published in the Events section about four weeks beforehand. Walks are usually free of charge.

Due to the possible trip and fall hazard that they present to our members, we regret that dogs are not welcome on the walks.

In order to show that Woking Leisure Centre 50+ Club can organise safe walks some Guidelines have been produced which can be found by clicking here.

Each walk leader is required to carry out a formal Risk Assessment of each walk. Details of this can be found on the Walks Risk Assessment page.

In addition Eastwood Leisure Centre organises Social Walking every Friday. Meet at 11:30 at the Eastwood Leisure Centre for a one hour "social" walk returning at 12:30 for a coffee.

Trips

From time to time trips, outings and holidays are organised to various places of interest. These are advertised on the Events page on this site.

In order to show that Woking Leisure Centre 50+ Club can organise safe trips etc a Risk Assessment Document has been produced which is completed for each such trip by the leader. A Word Document of the blank form can be found by clicking here and a PDF Version by clicking here.

Constitution

The club is a properly constituted club with a constitution.

AGMs

NEW (3 May) An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held at the Leisure Centre each year in April. The most recent paperwork is the 2024 AGM Agenda and 2024 AGM Minutes. See also Paperwork for previous AGMs

Equipment

Suitable equipment is available for members use when they attend activities at 50+ sessions. Leisure Centre management and Club Committee Members have worked together to improve the availability of this equipment. In particular, new smaller size bowls are available and can be borrowed by applying to a committee member.

The short tennis balls provided free of charge by the Leisure Centre have NOT proved popular with members.   We have a stock of the short tennis balls members prefer for sale at £3.00 each.
