The walks below are published as ‘Ramblers’ events. Leaders and participants are therefore covered by the ‘Ramblers’ insurance. (Details on ‘Ramblers’ website.)
Clothing and equipment. Boots are recommended for all walks. Walkers should wear/bring appropriate clothing for the season and weather conditions. Leaders may refuse to include a walker who is not properly attired for the walk. Walkers are recommended to carry a basic first aid kit. Leaders should check that appropriate emergency and first aid equipment is taken on the walk. Ramblers’ website provides information and advice about what this should include. For example: a bivvy bag or lightweight shelter.
Walkers are advised to carry identity, medical and emergency contact details. (ICE cards are available from the committee.) Leaders have the right to refuse to accept anyone as a member of their party who, in their opinion, is considered to be at risk for any reason. It is the responsibility of all walkers to inform the leader of any medical problem which may affect their ability to walk.
Grades: L = relatively easy at leisurely pace; M- = a little easier than moderate; M = moderate (reasonable degree of fitness required; M+ = a little harder than moderate; S = strenuous (above average fitness required and could involve rough country and mountains).
Please note: The leader will take account of the slowest member of the party when setting the pace of the walk. Do not go ahead or leave the group without informing the leader or back-marker. Leaders are not responsible for anyone who does so.
Non-members are welcome to try up to 3 walks before joining Ramblers. No dogs except for dogs accredited as guide dogs or assistance dogs.
