Peter Points the Way
Currently we have some 40 Leaders who together lead:
10 evening walks, 11 Tea Shop Walks, 52 Short Walks (5 to 7.5 miles) and 52 Long Walks (8 miles plus) each year. That totals 125 walks meaning that on average each leader has to lead at least 3 walks, some leading many more.
We have over 120 miles of coast from Dorset to Cornwall, 368 square miles of Dartmoor and over half of glorious Devon, all within about an hour’s drive of our Central Meeting Point.
Thus we are constantly looking for more leaders to ensure that we have as few gaps in the Programme as possible.
We aim to assist potential leaders in building their confidence e.g. an evening walk based on where they might walk their dog, acting initially as a back marker for an experienced leader, or leading a favourite walk taken from a book of walks. Our own book of 25 Walks comes in handy in this regard.
We don’t like to put down many rules and prefer guidance towards best practice. To that end the following documents can be downloaded:
Leaders should be aware of Ramblers’ civil liability insurance cover.
Thank you to all our Walk Leaders
