Outdoor Events - general advice and information: For all outdoor events, participants should bring suitable outdoor clothing, waterproofs and boots or similar and, sun cream and plenty of water in hot weather.  Bring a packed lunch for full-day events.
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.
Booking is essential. We limit numbers for some events for safety and we require booking with the party leader by e-mail as soon as you are able to confirm attendance.  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. Contact the field trip leader (see below) or Chris Winnick at [email protected]
