It can be a bit daunting to meet a group of people and join any club for the first time but we try to make it painless and friendly!
It is generally better to meet us at our Central Meeting Place at Higher Buckeridge Road TeignmouthTQ14 8QP where you will see people gathering and nattering. They might be in two distinct groups as we often have people meeting for two different walks (Long or Short). If you just amble up to anyone and say you are new to the Group and ask who is leading the short/long walk, you will be put in touch with the Leader of that walk who will help you with car sharing etc.
If you intend joining us at the start of the walk it is best to contact the Leader in advance and tell him or her that you will be there. Please ensure however that you are there at least 10 to 15 minutes before the published start time so that you are suited and booted ready for a prompt start. Even Ramblers may become grumpy if they have to hang around in the cold and wet waiting for someone!
Please bring suitable clothing, footwear, drinks and refreshment as the Leader has the authority to turn someone away if they poorly equipped and at risk of getting caught out in adverse weather conditions. This can put the Walker and the Group at risk especially on Dartmoor where the weather can change rapidly and be very wet, windy and cold.
You will find that we are a friendly bunch willing to chat about a wide range of subjects. The main object is to enjoy your surroundings with fellowship and exercise thrown in.
