Walking Allowed in Groups of Six

We are now allowed to go for socially distanced walks of up to six people.

The Club is starting to organise Sunday walks, however the number of walks is determined solely by the number volunteering* to lead. A system is in place to help members find a suitable walk. General Secretary John Patterson explains:

"Could anyone who wants to join a walk please use the bus list protocols: either email “ramblersbus@live.co.uk” or text 07955 429 632 and your name will be forwarded to me. Those submitting a request will be considered in the order in which the requests have been received. I will contact those who can be offered a place on a walk.

Those who have agreed to go on a walk should be aware that not turning up or cancelling late may well prevent another from joining a walk.

Anyone who has organised a walk which is short of the six allowed, I would appreciate being informed so I can hopefully get as many people on a walk as possible.

I cannot promise anything as this is all new, and it still only helps those with a car, as car sharing is not allowed.

If you meet members not on the internet, let them know about these arrangements if they are interested."

If you are not receiving emails detailing available walks, it may be that John doesn't have your email address.

*If you are able to devise and lead a walk, email John with details of the route, grade, etc. and he will try and find members to join you.
