ECO-FRIENDLY WALKS PROGRAMME

qwdspacer.gif

qwdspacer.gif

All public transport times should be checked beforehand.

NB Unless otherwise stated, walks are usually on a Sunday and start at 10.30am. Most of our walks are leisurely in pace and usually start and end at a London Transport or Overground Station.

Journey

Join us for two walks and qualify for FREE Membership of the group for up to one year - Ask walk leader for details.


Please look at Frequently Asked Questions, especially regarding clothing, footwear and refreshments.


Date Walk type Starting Point. Description of Walk. Distance
Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Walkers will need to contact the leader of each walk no later than the day beforehand, using the phone numbers from the members' newsletter, to 'book in' for the walk; up to a maximum of six including the leader.

Please ensure that you have face covering and gloves/sanitiser available for use at gates, stiles, refreshment stops etc. We will aim to walk in a loose socially distanced line, and if approached by members of the public from the opposite direction on a narrow path or pinch point, will put up face covering, stand still and turn our backs until we can move on.

If we follow sensible ways of walking, with distancing at stops and stiles, gates etc., not forming a group 'huddle' at any time, we should be able to enjoy our walks in company without increasing our personal health risk.

Due to Covid 19, our walks programme is currently limited, and subject to change at short notice due to restrictions and Government guidelines.
