North London & South Herts Ramblers
Since 1972 our group has been offering walks to those with a shared love of walking and the countryside. Most of our members live in Barnet, Enfield and Potters Bar, and we generally walk in Hertfordshire and the Chilterns. Each Sunday we usually lead a long walk of 10 to 15 miles, and a shorter walk of between 4 and 8 miles. Twice a month we usually have a leisurely Wednesday social walk, and a couple of times a year we arrange coach and train walks.
Why not come on a couple of our walks to try them out? Whether you want to come regularly or from time to time, we’ll be very happy to see you!

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
Learn - Laugh - Live
- u3a members are busy learning new things and staying active.
- u3a is really good fun
- making the most of life
Nobody has to stop learning just because they have stopped working. The u3a 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 in small groups to study a subject they all find interesting. We already have over 50 interest Groups
Membership of the u3a 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.
