PROBUS WALKS – THE WAY FORWARD

Current Government ‘Rule of Six’ guidelines permit walking groups of up to 30 but we will continue to restrict numbers to 12 participants.  Also, presently, we will only conduct the two hour/4 mile walk.

Note –  that organized group walks are categorized by the Government as ‘Outdoor physical activity events’ and as such are exempt from the latest restrictions so long as we meet Covid secure protocols and safety measures.

Wives/partners are welcome on the walks and a ‘booking system’ with ‘first come first served’ will be used.

You need to reply directly to the walk leader (contact details on the announcement) if you wish to attend.

The deadline for confirming attendance is the Friday previous to the Tuesday walk.

The walks programme will also be displayed on the Frome Probus website and kept updated as it develops.  Note the 10.15am start again…  

 

Walks are planned with safety in mind but they are entirely at your own risk.

Members are reminded that it is their personal responsibility to decide on the level of their capability and whether they should participate in each of the club activities.

Where walks are arranged, brief details of the proposed walk will be given to each member a few days prior to the event. Members wishing for earlier information should contact the walk leader.

Again, members must take into account their own capabilities before joining any club excursion, trip, walk or short breaks. In addition, members must wear and/or carry suitable apparel and walking aids to meet all weather and ground conditions.

It would be helpful if members who have mobile phones bring them to facilitate communications, especially in the event of an emergency.

FROME & DISTRICT PROBUS Walk – Corsley Heath-Longleat

Tuesday 6th October 2020 10.15am prompt start

We start and finish this walk in the car park of the Royal Oak, Corsley Heath (postcode BA12 7PR).  Two tables of six have been pre-booked for the lunch. We must keep socially distanced and the two tables cannot intermix.  Remember to bring and wear a face covering where appropriate.  Also suggest you bring hand sanitizer as you may unavoidably touch gates etc during walk. 

This is a gentle stroll to the edge of Longleat Safari Park. We will enjoy quiet lanes, Forest views and undulating countryside.  The 4 miles should take just over 2 hours and we will be following social distancing/Government guidance rules – getting us back to the Royal Oak just before 12.30pm for lunch.

See you at the walk.   To book a place email me:   jandmnoller@hotmail.co.uk

We will continue to conduct our walks in a safe and practical way – following Government and National Rambling Association rules.

Keep healthy, keep safe and

Best wishes  Mel
