NOTES FOR LEADERS AND RAMBLERS

Leaders are requested to give advance notice of details and grade of ramble and appoint a backmarker. They will also ensure the group follow the Countryside Code - i.e. single file through crops, use right hand side on roads, use stiles where provided, and gates to be left as they were found. They will also advise if a pub stop and/or lunch are intended.

PACE of WALK

Leaders are reminded they set & control the pace of the walk to reflect  the differing abilities of the group. They do not allow the pace to be forced by other members. Walking should be enjoyable for all members.

RAMBLERS

Ramblers join walks at their own risk, and for their own safety are requested to stay behind the leader and in front of the back marker. It is advisable to wear suitable footwear and to take sufficient fluids to drink with you.

CROSSING FIELDS WITH LIVESTOCK IN

The Leader should wait at the entrance to the field for everyone to catch up, If part way through the field before Livestock are spotted, stop and wait for everyone to catch up.   

ACTION TO BE TAKEN IN SEVERE WEATHER

When a ramble is to take place, and severe weather occurs, please contact leader, or Rambles Secretary, in case there have been changes to the arrangements

CAR SHARING

Meeting at Crabbs Cross Car Park is optional and allows for car sharing which we encourage to save both the environment and cost.

Please note that if leaders provide a time for meeting at Crabbs Cross, It is their responsibility to arrange for either themselves, or a deputy, to attend in order to ensure that everyone wishing to join the walk is accommodated.

Any contribution to cost is voluntary.

The car park is opposite the Fish and Chip Shop on the Evesham Road near the five way roundabout.

DOGS ARE NOT PERMITTED ON WALKS
