At the time of writing, the government has made a number of broad announcements concerning sport and leisure. By the time you read this, the Ramblers Association will have had a chance to assess which rules are relevant to outdoor walking and how to apply them. If you decide to walk with us, please be prepared to follow the Ramblers Association guidance which may necessitate taking your contact details beforehand and strict control on the numbers of walkers, plus, of course, the usual rules concerning social distancing, hand cleansing, etc. Therefore please regard the diary below as a guide.
