Current Safety Guidelines

The pandemic has meant changes for us all and as a group we are aware that we still need to ensure that all walks are safe. There are some things we all need to consider to make sure the walks are COVID 19 secure.  We now use these guidelines to inform all of our members. 

  • We ensure that any current restrictions are explained at the start of the walk  

  • The walks are open to members and non members alike, but we would ask you to support us by becoming a member.

  • People must understand their role as walkers and what they must do, in order to participate in SVRC walks.
  • Travel to the start point in a safe COVID 19 way. If car sharing, please follow the latest government guidance on travel and transport in England.
  • All our walk leaders are volunteers and undertake the walk as a personal choice. There is no obligation or pressure to volunteer or take part if they don’t want to.
  • All walks are pioneered prior to the day and a risk assessment is carried out. 
  • When on roads walk in STRICT single file. 
  • You are required to walk behind the walk leader at all times unless directed otherwise.
  • Give way, as necessary on narrow paths such as woodland or canal towpaths.  Have consideration for other walkers with regard to social distancing.
  • If you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 then do not attend the walk.
  • By everyone taking just a few extra measures we can keep each other safe.
