To help you enjoy your day out in safety, please read the following
Choose the right walk
How much time do you have?
What is the weather forecast?
How fit are you?
Please think about these
questions before you add your name to the list of routes.
Take care of yourself
There are no leaders on any walks.
Keep a note of your planned route.
Find out on the bus who is in your group and
start your walk with them.
Do not walk alone.
Try not to get too far ahead of or behind your
group. If you are in front, wait for the others. If you are
behind, shout or whistle to get them to wait for you.
If you decide to leave your group and join
another, tell the people in your old and new groups.
Check your equipment
The weather may change!
We advise at least walking boots, rucksack, food
and drink for the day, hat and gloves, waterproof/windproof
jacket and over-trousers, and in winter a torch. Most people
also take spare footwear and a change of jumper/trousers which
can be left on the bus.
Take a note of the
bus driver’s mobile phone
number (it will be on the sheet which lists the routes).
Find out where the bus will be at the end of your
walk and when it will leave.
If you have any questions about
this information, or there is anything else you want to know either
about a particular walk or about the Club - please ask. There are
usually several members of the Committee on the bus who’d be very
happy to speak with you.
Have a good day out!
PROCEDURE IN THE
EVENT OF LATENESS BACK TO THE BUS
Because of the new EU drivers’ regulations it is
imperative everyone is back at the bus and ready to
leave by the time agreed on the day of the walk.
If anyone is late back, the bus will wait only
30 minutes past the agreed time and this may mean there may
be no ½ hour stop on the way home.
The Committee will ask for 2 volunteers to remain
behind while the rest of the bus leaves for home.
