Many thanks for agreeing to lead a walk. We appreciate that it takes extra time and effort but without leaders there would be no walks! If you are thinking of leading a walk but you are unsure, then please do not hesitate to contact Mick Kemp on 01323 486756.
if you wish to lead a walk:
- You will first need to complete a walk’s Entry Form. This is where you give the Walks Secretary the basic details of the walk. You can download the Entry Form using the link below.
- It is expected that not long before you lead a walk, you will have “reccied” it – i.e. checked that the walk is suitable and safe.
- You will need to complete a Booking Form. You will be completing this as members contact you to go on the walk. Please take it with you to the walk and ensure it is a complete list of walkers. The Booking Form will need to be retained by you for 21 days. The maximum number of walkers on each walk is decided by the walk leader. Please indicate your wish to the Walks Secretary when you complete your Walk Entry Form.
- We do ask that before you lead a walk, you read the Generic Risk Assessment Form. This form is the same for all walks and you do not need to anything other than read it and consider its relevance to the walk you are leading.
