For all outdoor events participants should bring suitable outdoor clothing, waterproofs and boots or similar. Bring a packed lunch for whole day events, sun cream and plenty of water in hot weather. General safety advice will be given before all our events, but we ask all who attend to take personal responsibility for their own safety and possessions, and to pay special regard to trip hazards and the likely presence of ticks. Before starting, please advise walk leader of any medical or other conditions which could lead to you being unable to complete the walk.

Booking: We limit numbers for some events for safety and we require booking with the party leader by e-mail to confirm your place.  If you need to cancel a booked place, please tell the leader asap so that the place(s) may be offered to others.  Leaders may also be able to answer any individual request for further information.
