Where a walk involves public transport it is advisable to check the train or bus times beforehand. A packed lunch will be needed unless stated otherwise.

Walk leaders must carry out a written risk assessment and return it to the Secretary. This is required as part of the conditions of our insurance. The risk assessment form can be found here (PDF) or here (MS Office).
