Rules and Regulations.
We issue all members with a booklet of our rules and regulations and these web pages also contain a few essential pointers.
Why not apply?
We very much welcome new members. On the other pages of this site we have tried to give a clear idea of the walks we do and the membership requirements. If you find that the walks, the times and places we meet would suit you, then we extent a warm invitation for you to come along and join us for a few walks. After a couple of walks you will be invited to apply for membership.
To arrange to meet with us for a walk, please contact us by email, at the address below, giving the next possible Saturday you would be available to come. A member of the committee will reply to you, by email or phone, and give you the times and locations of meeting places for the proposed day. If you give some idea of your fitness level and walking experience we can help you select the appropriate walk grade for you to start with. The Leader of the walk will be told to expect you and will give you a warm welcome on the day.
