Wareham Walkers is run by volunteers who arrange walks that are of medium pace and generally of one to two hours duration.  If Leaders are available, on occasions a slower, shorter, stroll will be organised additionally for less able walkers.
Wareham Walkers is a small, friendly, weekly walking group for mainly older people who appreciate the health advantages of walking regularly. We are based in Wareham, Dorset, UK, and welcome newcomers to join us for a walk and optional coffee afterwards in the convivial company of like-minded folk.

Wareham Walkers and Coronavirus (Covid-19)
In common with other walking groups and to help suppress the spread of Covid-19, earlier this year we reluctantly decided to suspend all regular Wareham Walkers walks (both Home and Away). Following the latest advice, we have now restarted our Home walks but currently we regret that there will unfortunately be no usual organised social gatherings for coffee after any of our walks and walking will consist of socially distanced sub-groups using separate walking routes around Wareham.
As long as you are displaying no symptoms of Covid such as a high temperature, new continuous cough or changes in your ability to taste and smell - and that you have not been in contact with other people with any symptoms of Coronavirus - regular members will be welcome to attend our walks.  But if in doubt, don’t come!

Away from the Group you should keep healthy and get regular exercise by walking …
As long as you have no symptoms (temperature, continuous cough), it is considered safe to:

Walk well away from other people – keep at least a metre apart (Social Distancing)

Walk to the open countryside from your home – avoid urban areas, if possible

Walk by yourself away from anyone else, as long as you feel safe doing so

Walk the dog – but avoid interacting with other dog owners

Walk at a ‘normal distance’ from family members with whom you share your home

Walk with friends but only if you try to keep at least three feet apart

When you return, remove gloves with care then wash hands thoroughly

Walk regularly to keep fit and help combat Covid19 and other ailments

The government has confirmed that ‘organised physical activities’ such as our Wareham Walkers group walks may continue as long as they are organised in a Covid-secure way. To comply, we will form sub-groups and be socially distanced. This is an explicit exemption which reflects both the low risk of organised outdoor activities and the important health and well-being benefits of people staying active outdoors.
Dorset Police have been informed of the details of our weekly walks and given our Leader a Reference Number. To limit numbers attending, we regret that, until the restrictions are removed, we cannot welcome new walkers for now.
