We walk every Sunday morning and on one weekday morning each week. During the summer months there are also walks on one weekday evening each week (the start times for these are shown in the walks programme). Additional short walks are approximately 4 miles long, are less demanding and are taken at a slower pace. They start at the same time & place as the main walk, unless otherwise stated. All walks, except evening walks, include a short break, so please bring refreshments of your choice.
The walks are primarily intended for our members but prospective members are welcome to join us for a few walks to try us out before making a decision to become a member. Our insurance precludes us from allowing guests to walk with us on more than three occasions without becoming a member. For insurance purposes guests will also be required to provide their addresses when signing in for a walk.
Postcodes are the closest available to the given Map References.
If you have any queries about a walk, or if the weather is particularly bad, please contact the leader to check if the walk will go ahead. Members can find the contact details of the walks leaders in the Newsletter. Non members should contact the Walks Secretary, Bill Reed on 01474 814957 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please Take Care
Although the Group’s walk leaders take care with the planning and execution of their walks, anyone taking part in our walks does so at their own risk. Please see our Risk Assessment.
Please stay behind the leader and in front of the back marker. If you need to break away from the group or feel ill, please tell the back marker.
When walking with our group, please remember that it is your responsibility to make sure you don’t lose sight of the walkers ahead of you. The walk leaders will do their best to make sure they do not leave anyone behind. They check regularly but can’t always be sure that they’ve done so before a gap has formed. We don’t want to lose anyone, so please do take care.
Please note – if the leader permits dogs, please keep them on short leads at all times.
Please remember to bring your own medication , together with something to drink, suntan lotion, plasters etc.
In case of emergency
Please carry the name and contact details of your next of kin in case you are taken ill during a walk, so that we can get in touch with them.
It is recommended that everyone enters emergency contact details in their mobile phones – instead of people’s names just call them ICE1, ICE2 etc. That way the emergency services an find them easily.
