What you should know beforehand:


Please be prepared for bad weather and bring footwear suitable for rough ground. The activities may be changed on the day, depending on weather or other adverse circumstances.


Young people under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.


If you have any worries about fitness or have medical conditions which might affect your ability to walk, please talk to the leader at the start of the walk. If the leader assesses you as not being fit for the walk, you will not be able to take part.


It is very important for your own safety and that of the group that you obey the instructions of the walk leader or of any of the assistant leaders. It is of particular importance that the group always stays together.
