Walking for the pleasure and enjoyment of the countryside.

We ask walkers to comply with any Covid precautions being recommended by the Government guidelines at the time. We may also put in place any additional measures we feel appropriate for your safety and the safety of others. 
Names and contact details of all walkers will be taken and recorded until further notice.
Please do not attend any club events if you are feeling unwell, have any Covid symptoms, have tested positive or should be self isolating. Please be sure to let us know if you test Covid positive shortly after attending a walk.
