Special Coronavirus Notice for walks
Booking is essential for all walks. Please do not contact the leader until the Monday prior to the walk.
Due to the pandemic we all need to take extra steps to stay safe and keep others safe. Please follow the safety advice given by the walk leader, including the latest guidelines on physical distancing. The Ramblers website has lots of information and guidance on the COVID-19 pages. Please bring hand sanitiser and a face mask in case of emergencies.
The number of walkers on any given walk at the moment will not usually exceed 15. The walk leader will make a note of your name and contact details when you book: we will only use this information to get in touch about the walk, or to share as requested by NHS test and trace. You will need to get in touch with us if you become unwell following a walk. If you are unable to attend please cancel your booking, and it is important that you do not turn up for a walk without first booking a place as we will have to turn you away.
Please see https://www.ramblers.org.uk/volunteer-zone/coronavirus.aspx for more information.
Irrespective of Covid, walks are advised to carry details of next of kin in an easily accessible place in their rucksack in case of an emergency.
Alnwick Ramblers is a friendly group who enjoy walking in the beautiful North Northumberland countryside.
We organise two walks a month led by group members – a great way to get outside and make new friends. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, just turn up at the starting point and say 'Hello'.
Our Sunday walks are frequently around 7 or 8 miles long, occasionally longer, almost always start at 10.am and at the published starting point, so get there a little early to park. You will need a packed lunch, something to sit on at lunch and be equipped with walking boots and sticks, if you like to use them. Don't forget that on any walk the weather can change so pack a waterproof as well. After the walk there is sometimes a visit to a cafe.
There is information about longer walks on the Nothumbria website, link above. They take place on the last Saturday of every month.
Also on this page is a link to advice about leading a walk, and a growing list of our favourite walks which you can choose from if you want to help and lead one of our walks. Contact us if you need help, advice or someone to recce a walk with.
