Restarting group walks

Quick Guide for Walkers

What’s changed?

Due to COVID-19 we need to change the way Ramblers group walks are organised – by limiting the group size, and taking extra measures to keep each other safe.

This guide outlines the steps that everyone must take when joining a Ramblers Walking for Health group walk.

1.      Booking onto a walk

  • Check the walk listing – Look at the walk listings to help you choose a walk – you may want to try a shorter or easier route if you haven’t been walking as much as you normally would. The walk listing will include details of how to book a place. If it doesn’t, contact the walk leader or Scheme coordinator.
  • Book onto the walk in advance head to the Chichester District Council Website or call 01243 521041.
  • Don’t turn up to a walk without booking – we need to limit numbers for everyone’s safety. Remember you can’t bring any additional people along if they haven’t booked. Let the walk leader know if you need to cancel – If things change and you can’t make it, please cancel your place or let the walk leader know as soon as possible so that someone else can go.

2.      Before the walk

  • Food and drink – Bring your own food or snacks and plenty of water, as cafes may still be closed.
  • Clothing and equipment – Wear suitable clothing and footwear for the conditions – if in doubt, ask the walk leader. You may want to bring your own alcohol-based hand sanitiser, gloves or first aid supplies. The walk leader may have a first aid kit, but for minor incidents it may be better to use your own supplies.
  • Getting to the walk – Plan how you will get to the walk. Remember you are not allowed to share a car with someone outside of your household or social bubble, and it may not be possible to use public transport.

3.      On the walk

  • Follow the government guidelines on social contact and physical distancing – Listen to the walk leader’s briefing so you know what to do, and maintain 2 metres distance from anyone outside your household or social bubble.
  • Avoid touching gates and path furniture – If you do – wash your hands as soon as possible. We recommend carrying alcohol-based hand sanitiser. You might want to wear gloves too.
  • DO not share food and drink, or equipment such as walking poles.
  • Walk responsibly – When other walkers are passing, remember to stand back and give way. Let the walk leader or back marker know if you are having problems, feel unwell, or need to slow down or stop.

  • These walks are led by Volunteer Walk Leaders and are designed to cater for all ages and abilities. The walks offer opportunities to exercise and meet new people in a safe and friendly environment.
  • If you would like to be informed about walk cancellations and changes then please email us at: info@chichesterwellbeing.org.uk and we can add you to our HeartSmart mailing list.
  • All walks finish at their starting point unless otherwise stated.
  • Please arrive 10 minutes before the walk is due to start.
  • Please inform the Walk Leader if you will be leaving the walk early.
  • We recommend always bringing a mobile phone with the number below stored in case of emergency.
  • Please wear footwear suitable for country walks and you may like to bring a drink of water.
  • Please note that the walks are smoke free.
  • Dogs are welcome on walks unless otherwise stated but must be kept on the lead.
  • Timings and distances stated on the programme are approximate.
  • If the weather is poor the walk may be cancelled. Please check with the office or website if unsure (office hours Mon-Fri 8.45am-5pm).
  • Please read the walk description before joining the walk and ensure you are walking at the right level for you.
