Walk Activities

 We walk regularly on Tuesday Mornings, usually around 6  - 7 miles with a pub stop at the end. There is also normally a walk on a Saturday which can be anything from 7 - 12 miles, there is usually either a pub stop at the end or part of the way through a longer walk. The walk details will usually say whether there is a pub stop or not.

We have also started doing some shorter Thursday walks, of about 4 miles, these are not on every week but are shown on our walks programme.

 Although we do mostly countryside walks, we do do some London walks as well, as a group we have walked the Capital Ring in stages . We have also done other London Walks, the picture below  is of our group starting out on one  at Waterloo.

All the walks leaders are volunteers.They are not formally trained to lead walks or to administer first-aid.  They do not carry first-aid kits.  They may refuse to allow someone to join a walk if, in their opinion, the person concerned does not appear suitably equipped or capable of completing the type of walk involved.

All sporting and leisure activities have inherent hazards associated with them and rambling is no exception.  In the spite of the safety of members always being the paramount concern, accidents will occasionally occur.  It is important therefore that when entering into the activity each member appreciates that they have responsibility to identify the hazards associated with the activity and take all reasonable steps to eliminate or minimise the potential for an accident to arise.

Dogs must be properly supervised, and, where necessary, kept on a lead.  Owners are entirely responsible for their dogs. If bringing a dog best to check with the leader first if ok.
