A limited walks programme is now going ahead. Under Government Guidelines walking is classified as an ‘outdoor physical activity event’ and it is therefore legal for there to be a group of up to 30 persons allowed to go on a walk. However the walk leader can determine the number of walkers for his/her walk having taken into account the nature of the route and the number of stiles etc. You will need to book a place on the walk with the leader by phoning them. Bookings will open at 9am 2 days before the walk.
Walkers should keep 2 metres apart and gloves should be worn at all times.
