Forthcoming Walks

The Club has a regular programme of fortnightly Sunday outings each year from late February/early March to early November, and monthly winter walks in December, January and early February.  The annual programme comprises a rich variety of both ‘point – to – point’ walks and circular walks.

Outings are by hired coach leaving from New Telecom House, South College St., with a second pick-up point at the bus stop on Great Southern Road next to Allanvale Cemetery.

Advance bookings  are necessary and individuals are encouraged to create a log in and book directly through this web site. An email will confirm your place on the coach.

Members may book up to two outings in advance on line. Once a booking has been made people are responsible for turning up or cancelling and the latter can be managed on line.  Bus hiring arrangements are finalised on the Wednesday preceding a day outing and all on line bookings and cancellations should be made by Tuesday 11:30 pm. after which the on line facility is closed for this walk. For bookings or cancellations from Wednesday please contact Gilbert.  The committee reserve the right to ask for the booking fee if members fail to show for a walk without contacting the bookings secretary or to turn away walkers wearing unsuitable clothing

The Club does not operate a leader/back marker system and instead issues individual route sheets on line.  Ideally, participants should have map reading and navigational skills, but this is not essential as guidance will be provided for inexperienced walkers. Suitable outdoor clothing and footwear is essential.  If you don’t have email the bookings secretary Gilbert can be contacted telephone 01224 484361 (7pm to 8pm).
