Welcome Back! 2021 Please read details about the walks.
If you are new to walking and would like to join us then please contact Sarah on 07879640676 or email email@example.com in the first instance as I need to know that you feel confident in doing our walks in the interest of safety for yourself and others. As these walks are not a stroll! Ideally you will have some level of fitness. Currently, you are able to come along for a ‘one free trial for a walk’. Yearly membership is £25.00. Payment for walks can be made to: Solemates is the name of the account and it is a business Account: Sort Code: 09-01-27, Account: 87905720. Please note that we normally have breaks on all walks and we usually take snacks/drinks to have on route even though we may stop at a pub/tea shop afterwards which is optional.
In addition we take photographs (for our facebook page) and sometimes video for promotional purposes so if you do not wish to be included then that is fine, please just opt out!
I also do not allow dogs on the walks, because of possible issues with cattle. There are other groups which cater for dog walkers.
