December 2018

Please read this carefully
Before leaving home, be sure you are fit enough and equipped sufficiently to undertake your walk.If you’re unsure of your fitness level, try a short easy walk first—it’s much better to find a walk a little too slow than to make yourself miserable and exhausted. Most of our walks are off-road in rural areas. Please have suitable footwear and clothing for both walk and weather (you can check our web-site for the day’s weather). Bring some food and drink even if the walk includes a pub or café break. Leaders may possibly refuse to accept participants who are not adequately fit or equipped. If in doubt phone the leader first. For your own and others’ safety, please abide by the advice herein and the instructions of the walk leader. Although walking is one of the safest outdoor activities, none is completely without risk. It is your responsibility to behave sensibly and minimise the potential for accidents. You are NOT covered by us or the leaders for personal injury or loss—the cost would have been too great and the scheme could not have gone ahead. It is your decision if you walk with us under these terms. If you are unknown to your walking group, you may be asked for your name at the start. Please co-operate and give it.
