All sporting and leisure activities have inherent hazards associated with them and
rambling is no exception. In spite of the safety of members always being the paramount
concern, accidents will occasionally occur. It is important, therefore, that when
entering into the activity, each member appreciates that they have a responsibility
to identify the hazards associated with the activity and take all reasonable steps
to eliminate or minimise the potential for an accident to arise.
We recognise the enjoyment that walking with your dog can bring and where this is
practicable we encourage it. However the walks programme indicates on which walks
dogs should NOT be brought. This may be for reasons including the nature of the terrain
or paths or the presence of livestock en-route. If you do bring a dog on walks where
they are allowed please keep it on a lead at all times.
Please check bus times and train times taking you to the start or to the meeting
point. For rail service you can also call 08457 484950 (local call rates). For bus
(and train) times call the national help line on 0870 608 2608
Where a pub or cafe is used then as a courtesy walkers should not consume their own
food or drink on the premises unless the manager has given express permission. Where
a pub lunch is advertised on the programme this cannot be guaranteed.
We car-share where practicable and such walks are identified on the programme. As
a courtesy and a purely voluntary arrangement passengers could offer the car driver
some contribution towards the cost. It is suggested that 22p a mile per car might
cover petrol cost, i.e. two in a car pay 11p each, three pay 7p each and so on. This
is just a suggestion and car-sharers are free to make any arrangement they see fit.
