Chairman’s Update – SEPTEMBER 2020

The Ramblers Association have advised that registered walking groups only are covered by the ‘outdoor physical activity events’ exemption and, therefore, do not have to comply with the ‘rule of 6’, introduced on 14th September.

They are supporting walks for groups of 30 maximum, including the leader or leader(s), providing certain precautions are taken. Please see their advice on this link, which broadly applies to all TBRC walks taking place currently and in foreseeable future. We will not be arranging car share or cafe visits which have traditionally been part of Sunday walks.  https://www.ramblers.org.uk/-/media/Files/Volunteer%20Zone/Coronavirus/Ramblers%20Restart%20for%20Walkers%2030%20July.ashx?la=en&hash=C9EA024CFB6BDA2681576B765281DC60

The number of walkers allowed on each walk will be AT LEADERS DISCRETION and bookings must be made. Contact details will be taken and retained for 21 days. Our Chairman, Rod Wilson will be writing to all members shortly outlining the requirements and we intend to create a temporary programme to run until Christmas for both Sunday and Saturday walks, available via email, or this website. Please sign up for the newsletter to ensure you get the updates.

This is, of course, dependant on the situation remaining the same and ALL participants complying with the guidance and the Leaders instructions.

The revised Saturday programme is available below and a Sunday one is currently underway. We are having ONE Wednesday walk, on November 18th, which is to celebrate the Club’s 50th Anniversary – details to follow. It has certainly been an unusual Anniversary year  so far!

We will keep you posted with updates, meantime – stay safe –  and let’s take our first tentative steps to recovery together.
