Walk Details

      • Walk details will be e-mailed to all interested members one week prior to the event. This will give times, walk start point, directions and a brief description of the walk. Members make their own way to the walk start point (usually a car park). Members requiring a lift and those able to offer lifts should contact the co-ordinator who will try to ensure that all members are accommodated. Passengers to share petrol costs with their driver. Start time from walk starting point is usually 10.00 and leaving time from Hucknall is usually 09.15 but may vary. Walk finish time is approximately 15.00. Most walks will include a pub or cafe stop at or towards the end of the route.


      • If adverse weather conditions or other reasons cause the proposed walk to be cancelled the group co-ordinator will issue an e-mail notification or telephone call if necessary. If in any doubt contact your co-ordinator.
