INFORMATION UPDATE - PETERBOROUGH RAMBLERS GROUP - AUGUST 2020
We are hoping to restart Group Walks from Thursday 13th August. They will be limited to 30 participants with Leaders to follow Covid-19 guidelines published by RA and distributed by our Committee. These include the need to pre-book by phoning the Leader no later than 18.00 on the day before if you intend to join the walk. If you turn up on spec you may find that the group is already full. This applies to all, but non-members from other areas must particularly note this requirement – you will be welcome to join us if we can accommodate you. The Leaders have to keep a note of names and contact phone numbers for 21 days after the walk in case a member of the group becomes unwell. You must confirm on the day that you have no symptoms of Covid-19 and must immediately get in touch with the Leader if you develop them subsequently. It will be sensible for you to have hand sanitiser with you; all Leaders will be instructed to carry protective gear in case of accidents during the walk.
We are still hoping to go ahead with plans for the AGM and the Christmas lunches in anticipation of further relaxations of lockdown. We will also publish the Group Walks Winter Programme.
Our groups help local people enjoy walking, both exploring and protecting the varied countryside around Peterborough. This encompasses areas in Rutland, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, and occasionally further afield to the Norfolk Coast.
New walkers are always made welcome. You will find that we are a sociable lot, but never interfere if you prefer to have thinking time to yourself. There is the opportunity to make new friends, who offer generous support if the occasion arises. You will discover how walking boosts your health, also how it always leaves you in a better mood at the end of the walk than when you started! This turns beneficial exercise into an activity that is eagerly anticipated and helps offset the immediate physical effects. We do acknowledge that the terrain around us does not offer the steep ascents of hillier areas… but a good leg stretch is always guaranteed. Non-members are welcome to join us but if they wish to continue to walk with us they will be expected to join the Ramblers after 2 or 3 walks.
What we offer…
Sunday Walkers: We meet fortnightly on Sundays throughout the year for circular walks of 7 to 12 miles. Bring along a packed lunch and a drink.
Bus Walks: These walks are mainly linear and aimed at those without a car. Car drivers may, of course, join us if they can work out how that suits them. Part of the experience is, though, travelling out and back together. Our walks may involve ‘sightseeing’ of buildings/wildlife, or a convenient hostelry… and we normally bring a picnic lunch. Families are welcome.
Thursday Walkers: Our aim is to offer a programme of weekly circular walks of around 5 miles. We enjoy 'leisurely' walks, but they are more demanding than mere ambles, so a certain level of fitness is required. We start our walks promptly at the published time. Please park sensibly in and around the villages.
ONLY REGISTERED ASSISTANCE DOGS PERMITTED ON OUR WALKS.
Note: Please contact the walk leader (name and telephone number is given with the details of the walk) if you have any questions.
Please note that walks may be cancelled at short notice due to very bad weather. Always contact the walk leader if conditions are doubtful, as the leaders will not risk unnecessary danger for the trip to the start of the walk as well as for the walk itself.
