Lead a Walk

A big thank you so far to everyone who has volunteered to lead walks, organise weekends and run socials. We couldn’t run the group without you! If you are interested in leading a walk please contact us and we will add your name. We are also happy to advise people who have never led a walk or help you find a buddy to lead your first walk with.

Leader Guidance

Please read our guidance notes for walk leaders. The Ramblers Website also provides a good practice tool kit for walk leaders.

The current Ramblers Walk Leaders Checklist also provides guidance on leading group walks and information about first aid and what to do in an emergency.
