Leaders Page

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 must also complete a Risk Assessment (RA) Form.  This is a straightforward checklist to show you have thought about the health and safety aspects of the walk. The RA form must be submitted to Mick by the Tuesday prior to the walk. You can download the RA form using the link below.
  • Finally, 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 is 30 but you may wish to lead fewer walkers than this. Please indicate your wish to the Walks Secretary.
