Walking group aims

The group was formed in 2004 under the Walking For Health initiative.  It is now independent but still has the original objectives.
  •  Offering led health walks for beginners
  •  Abiding by health and safety standards and maintaining insurance cover
  •  Ensuring all our regular walks are led by trained volunteer walk leaders most of whom have also undertaken basic first aid training

Frequently Asked Questions

Q.     Can i bring my dog

A.     We ask walkers NOT to bring their dogs, the exception being assistance dogs.

Q.     If the weather is bad will the walk be cancelled?

A.     Not usually.  We walk in all weathers but, if ice or snow cause the ground underfoot to be treacherous, we will cancel for safety reasons.

Q.     Can children join the walks, can a bring a baby with me?

A.     Yes, children are welcome provided they are able to walk the distance due to be covered, but we do ask that those under the age of 15 are accompanied by a responsible adult.  We will do our best to accommodate walkers with babies and toddlers but suggest you phone us before coming along to discuss the practicalities.

Q.     Can vulnerable adults join the walks?

A.     Yes, vulnerable adults are welome to attend.  However if they need help to ensure they can complete the walk - walking aids, assistance dogs, carers to accompany them, etc. - they must bring that person or walking aid with them.  They may need to ask before the start of each walk whether the planned route involves any obstacles that might cause them a problem.

Q.     Are walks held on Bank Holiday Mondays?

A.     Yes.  The only exception is when Christams day falls on a Monday when no walk will be held.
