Group Walking: Advice courtesy of The Ramblers.
We plan to resume our twice monthly walks from Sunday 16th August. The programme has been amended to avoid ''Tourist hot spots' and to allow parking for members who wish to travel independently.
When on one of our walks you should follow this advice:
Be sensitive to rural communities and where possible avoid passing through working farmyards and gardens.
Avoid activities that may result in injury or require emergency services support, especially in remote locations.
Social distancing should be practiced at all times. Be mindful and courteous to others you may find on any paths you use.
Avoid touching gates and railings with your hands or use sanitiser if you do.
Be considerate to others and make sure you follow the Countryside Code (England and Wales) and Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

follow advice on local signs
take litter home.
When in any villages or towns, maintain social distance and wear a face covering where required.
