Please read these notes before walking with the Lower Wye Ramblers. Even those who have been members for many years are recommended to refresh their memories.
These guidelines are given to improve both the safety and enjoyment of our walks.
Meeting Point: We meet in the car park at Chepstow Leisure Centre (CLC). Additional meeting points are Raglan School (RS) or Dixton Roundabout Monmouth (DRM) – indicated on individual walks.
Departure: You should arrive at the meeting point early enough to leave at the stated departure time.
Safety: All sporting and leisure activities have inherent hazards associated with them, and rambling is no exception. In spite of the safety of members being the paramount concern, accidents may occasionally occur. It is important that each member appreciates that they should identify any hazards and take all reasonable steps to eliminate or minimise the potential for an accident to arise.
Dress: Suitable clothing and footwear must be worn. Leaders have the right to refuse permission for inadequately equipped persons to join a walk.
Food: Bring adequate food and drink to suit the length of the walk and time of year.
Start Point of Walk: Where possible, the start point of the walk is given, but please contact the walk leader if you wish to go directly to the start point.
Cars: Car sharing is encouraged, and passengers are requested to pay a levy for mileage costs as set out in the table below.
Non-Members: Non-members are welcome to join 2 or 3 walks free of charge. If they wish to continue after this, they will be expected to join the Ramblers Association.
Grades of Walks: Grades are decided by leaders to help you, but they are only a guide. Contact the leader if you need more information about the degree of difficulty and the terrain.
The length of the walk is given in miles and is combined with the grading: e.g. 5 E = a 5-mile easy walk and 10 S = a 10-mile strenuous walk.
All walkers participate in any walk at their own risk. If in doubt about your fitness to participate in any walk, please ring the leader, who will be happy to tell you about the walk. In bad weather, the leader may have to change the route of the walk or even cancel the walk.
