2017 AUTUMN WALKS & EVENTS PROGRAMME

WALKERS: Please note Start Times, which do vary.
All those participating in walks organised by the Society are reminded that they do so at their own risk and are themselves responsible for all their own Health & Safety issues.
Walkers are reminded not to leave any items visible and nothing of value in their parked cars.
For enquiries about specific walks and walk details e.g. meeting point, hills, mud or stiles, please telephone the walk leader for more information.
It is assumed that walkers will bring their own picnic lunches/drinks for the longer walks.
Where possible arrange to share cars to minimise parking space used.
The Society is always looking for new leaders for the walks - assistance is available for new leaders. For more information please contact Catherine Avery Jones -   csaveryjones@yahoo.co.uk
