Walking programme 2020
The walks programme has been cautiously restarted, but with restrictions on the number of people who can attend in order to comply with government guidance. Whilst the club is permitted to organise activities for up to 30 participants, numbers will usually be less to keep the group to a manageable size.
The club is required to carry out a risk assessment for each activity and to keep records of those attending. In order to comply with these requirements, if you wish to come on a club walk this must be booked in advance using Webcollect.
Many of you will already be familiar with using Webcollect to book places on weekend meets. If there is anyone who is not already registered with Webcollect and would like to do so, please contact Howard Jones firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you are unable to use Webcollect then a booking can be made on your behalf – ask the walk organiser
Members are expected to travel in separate cars unless from the same household.
All participants need to observe social distancing and hygiene measures during the walk.
You must not attend if you or a member of your household shows symptoms of Coronavirus
Avoid sharing equipment or food and drink with anyone not from your household
Thank you for your patience during this time.

Please respect the countryside and follow the Countryside Code
Many club members like to bring their dogs along, and provided they are well-behaved and kept under control this is not usually a problem. Dogs may be excluded from CRoW Access Land (except on rights of way). Please check for any restrictions before bringing your dog.
Please remember that even where there are no bird restrictions, your dog may disturb ground-nesting birds,and other wildlife as well as farm animals. Dogs found worrying farm animals could be shot. The Countryside Code has some specific advice for dog walkers.
Please always clean up after your dog.
