Sept/Oct  Walks  2020   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 dolman.sarah@yahoo.co.uk  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.  I do charge £5.00 for coming along as ‘prospective member’ for one walk only but this is redeemable against the yearly membership of £25.00.  Payment for walks can be made at Solemates Santander Account: Sort Code: 09-01-27, Account: 87905720 or payment of £5.00 on the day.  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. 

Please  have a look at the slideshow of Solemates from 2017 on the home page if you would like to see what we get up to.

Any ‘new/prospective’ member will now need to pay £5.00 towards membership which is redeemable against the yearly cost of now £25.00 should they decide to try us out at any time, at an event or any walk.  Any existing member re-joining at any time during 2020 the rate will continue to be £20.00 but for next year it will increase to £25.00.

 More walks to follow/………..

Would you like to lead a walk in the future?? Please let me know, I expect some of you have been checking some walks out over the last 3 months. It is good to have a change of leader and different areas from time to time.
