Wareham Walkers - Rules for Walkers

Walks start promptly at 10.30 am – please be at starting point by 10.25 am.

Suitable footwear (preferably walking boots) must be worn – no flip-flops, please!

The Walk Leaders will prevent you from walking with us if your footwear is inadequate.

For safety reasons we regret no dogs, pushchairs, wheelchairs or mobility scooters.

Grandchildren may accompany you during school holidays only.

Please inform the Walk Leader of any special medical condition not previously disclosed which may affect you on the walk.

Bring with you any medication you may require during the walk.

Bring sunscreen and drinking water if you think you may need them during the walk.

Refreshments at the conclusion of the walk are optional – please ensure you have sufficient parking time for this.

Please take special care when crossing or walking along roads.

Please endeavour to keep with the other walkers as a group – especially along roads.

To comply with the Highway Code Section 1(5) regarding Organised Walks: “Large groups of people walking together should use a pavement if available; if one is not, they should keep to the left”. Our walks fall into this category.

When crossing farm land, please ensure farm gates are closed after the group has gone through.

Please inform the Walk Leader and alert other walkers if you spot a particular new hazard.

Please inform the Walk Leader if you intend leaving the walk before its conclusion.

For your own safety, please follow all instructions given by the Walk Leaders and Organiser at all times.

It is the responsibility of individual group members to check with this website Home page for the latest news regarding possible disruption of scheduled Away Walks due to adverse weather conditions etc. If you are in doubt or have no Internet access, please phone the Organiser or Walks Leader.

Finally - relax and enjoy the walk with us!
