Information for walk leaders

  • • In addition to current risk assessments done for each walk the following guidance should also be considered..

Planning a walk

  • • Although the travel limit has been lifted we are encouraged to remain in our local area.
    • Car Parking – as we are not using minibuses for the time being car parking is a key issue. Is the car park open ?, has the car park enough capacity to allow members to park safely ?.
    • Toilet facilities - are the toilets open again ?
    • Avoid busy and narrow routes.
    • Know what to do at any pinch points or road crossings in order to keep walkers apart.

Before the Walk

  • • Walk leaders will be contacted by walkers to book a place on their walk.
    • The Walk Notice will give a closing date for booking a place on a walk.
    • Walks in Scotland are limited to a maximum of 15 people from 5 households.
    • When the walk is full (15 people) the walk leader will put names on a reserve list.
    • Walkers will contact the walk leader if they can’t get to a walk. Walk leaders will then offer their place to a walker on the reserve list.

On the walk

  • • The walk leader will keep a register of who is on each walk for NHS Test and Protect requirements.
    • The walk leader should remind walkers of all current safety advice.

After the walk

  • • Pass the walk register to the Walk Coordinator.
