Guidelines:

WALKING FOR THE FIRST TIME?


Feel free to consult the leader beforehand if you have any queries

Introduce yourself to the leader at the start, you will be made very welcome

Wear strong shoes or walking boots

Bring suitable rainwear (a small umbrella may be useful)

Some ramblers like to use a walking stick, especially in slippery conditions

In our group we don't walk in front of the leader unless invited to do so

All walks are circular unless otherwise stated

Walks in the Chilterns may be hilly - call the leader if concerned



SAFETY

All walkers join the Group walks entirely at their own risk

Although walk leaders are volunteers they must be current members of the Ramblers' Association

In bad weather it is solely up to the leader to change or abandon a walk

On roads keep to single file, close to the right-hand side, unless advised otherwise

Look out for those behind you when turning a corner - don't lose touch



REFRESHMENTS

Always carry sufficient liquid, and some 'iron rations'

For all-day walks bring a packed lunch

We don't normally lunch in pubs, but might stop for a drink only. Please remember that muddy boots are not popular in pubs

Don't consume your own food or drink on the premises

Don't expect to use the facilities without buying a drink
