The Burton Fellwalkers programme has now been planned up to 10th October. The winter programme will be arranged in the autumn.

There are 2 walk options on some days - hopefully something for everyone!

Please try to inform the walks leader if you plan to attend - but there are no restrictions on numbers per walk (up to 30)

COVID GUIDELINES

Full guidelines have been published by the government, and you should ensure that you are fully informed of this advice before you attend a walk. 

 

To avoid the risk of infecting others

Do not come if you are infected or you have been in contact during the last 14 days with someone who you know has been infected.

  

To avoid both the risk of becoming infected or passing the infection to others

  • Do not share cars on the way to or from the rendezvous
  • Keep a physical distance between yourself and other walkers of 2 metres. Be particularly aware of this at stiles, gates, and narrow points in the walk. Where it is possible one person should hold gates open for everyone.
  • Do not share kit or food with other walkers
  • Carry a mask to wear if you are injured and need help from other people, and wear the mask if our group is unable to maintain social distances from other groups of people    
  • Carry hand sanitiser gel and use it frequently especially after opening or closing gates, or carry disposable gloves to use opening gates
  • If you develop symptoms within 48 hours of a walk arrange a Covid 19 test and comply with government track and trace advice.

Please note 

  • We will walk in separate groups of no more than 6 people –each group to remain in sight of each other. Please ensure someone in the second group has the walk leader’s mobile phone number, and ideally a route map
  • Walk leaders will record who is on their walk and retain details for 21 days.
  • Walkers should carry a food pack and drink and a torch on all walks.
  • Walkers should wear adequate clothing for the prevailing conditions and ensure their footwear is strong and in good condition. They should have emergency contact details in or on their rucksack.
  • Unless otherwise directed, the walking party must walk behind the Leader and not deviate from the route being led by the Leader.
  • Walkers have collective responsibility to keep reasonably together during the walk and to alert the leader if too spread out. The Back Marker should be informed if a walker needs to stop briefly (for a comfort stop, etc)
  • A walker must not leave the walk without the full agreement of the Leader.
  • Only walks on the Society’s published walk programme or circulated by the Secretary to all members are covered by the Constitution, Rules and Benefits of the society.
