Group name: South West Sussex
This group is a part of Sussex Area.
In view of the the situation regarding the threat of Covid-19, Coronavirus, your Committee took the decision to cancel the remainder of the then Programme ending in March and the whole of the Spring Summer Programme up to the end of July. We shall keep abreast of developments and any changes will be advised via the website.
We urge all walkers to respect the interests of all people who use the outdoors and follow government advice to only walk locally to where you live, to avoid crowded areas and to practice social distancing. As a guide, your travel time should be far less than the amount of time you spend walking.
If you are walking in local countryside, it is vital to walk responsibly. Be considerate to others and make sure you follow the Countryside Code. You should:
- leave gates as you find them
- keep dogs under close control at all times
- follow advice on local signs
- take litter home
Where possible, you should also:
- avoid touching gates and railings with your hands
- use alternative routes that do not pass through gardens, farmyards or schools, where social distancing may be difficult
- avoid popular locations and potentially busy times of day
- wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water as soon as possible after completing your walk
In happier times, the lovely city of Chichester is the hub for our activities, taking in the South Downs, the coastal plain, Chichester and Pagham Harbours, the Manhood Peninsular, around Arundel and straying in to South East Hampshire, Surrey and the Low Weald. We walk on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year providing a varied programme of walks in terms of location, distance and grade. You are welcome to join any walk without becoming a Ramblers' Association member, but you would be expected to join if you continue to walk with us.
