Walks Programme



Due to the latest instructions from the present Government, and the re introduction of meeting group number limitations {6}. We have been advised to re commence the BOOKING SYSTEM for all our future walks, or at least until advised otherwise. As before we will run with one or two groups, either staggered start times, or alternative circular routes in order to maintain social distancing and complying with the instruction.
So anyone wishing to go on any of the outstanding Summer Program walks please get in touch with the Rambles Secretary - Bill Heaps so that he can keep track of the numbers involved. If you have booked on previously your booking still stands.


General Notes

One metre distancing to be employed, and whatever other UK Government rules are in place at the time of each event. 

 The leader will outline any additional needs, that he or she requires on the day, please take heed and abide by them.

 No sweety breaks but Lunch will be as normal.

 Contact Leader directly if you have a query or question re their walk.

 After walks teas, would be optional if a suitable venue is available.

 You are a representative of the Bradford HF Walking Club, please ensure its good name and reputation is maintained.
