All walkers are strongly urged to carry their own first aid kit for use in case of injury.
We recommend that all walker carry a whistle. This is important if any members become detached frm the main group.
Any member who has not previously led a walk and is nervous of starting on their own can always seek help from committee members or other leaders
Leaders cannot be expected to turn out in bad weather. So if it is bad (either actually, or forecast) please phone the walk leader on that particular day to check that the walk is not cancelled. Otherwise you may be the only walker to turn up.
Guests will be welcome. They should be introdced to the leader before the walk starts.
