North London & South Herts Ramblers
Most of our members live in Enfield, Barnet or Potters Bar. Living near the edge of London, we generally drive out to Hertfordshire or the Chilterns for our walks. Every Sunday, we run a long walk of around 11-14 miles, and share cars / offer lifts from High Barnet. We also lead a shorter walk each weekend, usually of 5-8 miles, with some easier 2-4 mile walks and some mid-week walks about once a month. The short walks are generally more local, or in London.
Whether you want to come regularly or just from time to time, we’ll be glad to see you. We enjoy exercise, conversation, fresh air and nature on our walks. You can see our group walks at the side of this page, or click on the Contact link above to request a copy of our full Newsletter & Walks Programme. Why not come on some walks to try them out!
North London Rambling Club
We organise varied rambles and interest visits around London and the Home Counties each Saturday, and sometimes mid-week, always using public transport. Our walks are from 6 up to 15+ miles long. Enjoy the countryside, get some exercise, and unwind. We're a friendly group, all ages welcome, but the core ranges from 30 to 60+.
Palmers Green & Southgate U3A
U3A stands for University of the Third Age. It began in France in 1972 with U3As attached to existing universities. The core of the U3A in the UK, which started in 1982, is self directed learning. In the UK there are now over 900 U3As with nearly 320,000 members.
Nobody has to stop learning just because they have stopped working. The University of the Third Age is for people who want to keep active in mind and body. There's first age learning at school or college, followed by second age learning - the skills learnt at work. And there's third age learning when people learn whatever they want. That is what happens in U3A. People come together to study a subject they all find interesting.
Membership of the University of the Third Age is open to men and women who are no longer in full time work, irrespective of race, religion or politics. There is neither a lower or an upper age limit; no qualifications are required and none are given.
The Enfield Society
This society was founded in 1936 as the Enfield Preservation Society (EPS), and renamed The Enfield Society (TES) in 2007. It has about 2000 members and is one of the most active amenity societies in the country. The Enfield Society has a record of vigorous action in defence of the local environment by practical conservation and campaigning. There is also a strong social section. The Society is a registered charity, No.276451.
Enfield’s environment is threatened as never before. Open spaces are being sacrificed to commercial development. The Green Belt is under constant pressure. Historic buildings are deteriorating. We are fighting to preserve our heritage so that future generations can enjoy Enfield’s rich architectural legacy and Green Belt countryside. We do not oppose development, but do all that we can to ensure that it enhances the character and atmosphere of the Borough, while not losing the best of the past.
