Policies and Procedures


Walking for exercise and mental wellbeing is more important than ever. To make sure members can all enjoy it safely, it is important to keep up to date with current coronavirus restrictions.

  • Walkers who wish to join our walks will be asked to supply their names and telephone numbers for tracking purposes.

  • Members are required to comply with social distancing and the other covid protocols, which we have been made aware of during the last 14 months.

  • Walkers must not attend the walks if they have any symptoms of covid or have been in recent close proximity to anyone with the disease.

  • The walk leader will give an initial briefing before the walk starts outlining any health and safety risks including covid. It is important that members listen clearly and follow these instructions for their own safety and the safety of everyone else in the group.

  • If dogs are brought on the walks they must be kept on a reasonably short lead at all times during the walk.

  • These current freedoms have been hard won and it is our responsibility, to remain covid safe.

  • Hoping that you enjoy the forthcoming activities your committee has planned for you.
