General safety advice will be given before all our events.  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 presence of ticks.
Before starting, please advise the walk leader of any medical or other conditions which could lead to you being unable to complete the walk.
