Wise Words   For all outdoor events participants should bring suitable outdoor clothing, waterproofs and boots or similar. Bring a packed lunch for whole day events, and sun cream and plenty of water in hot weather. For evening moth etc. events bring clothing as above plus a good torch with new / recharged batteries. General safety advice will be given before all our events but we ask all who attend to take personal responsibility for their own safety and possessions and to pay special regard to trip hazards and the likely presence of ticks. Well-behaved dogs on short leads are welcome on our daytime events unless shown otherwise. If you require further information or wish to check whether an event has been postponed or cancelled due to poor weather, please contact the walk leader or contact before setting out.
