London Blind Rambling Club!

London Blind Rambling Club!

LONDON BLIND RAMBLING CLUB

Hello everyone and welcome to the 2017 Walk Programme.

My aim as walks organiser is to encourage as many visually impaired people as possible to join in with the planned walking activities of this Club. The average walk is 6 to 9 miles. Each walk is led (apart from the odd exception) by Rambling Association groups in their individual areas. One to one guiding (if needed) is usually available by these groups members. Please be sure to walk behind the leader of the walk.

Membership is ten pounds a year and can be paid on your first walk to the secretary.

Members receive up to 50% concession on return fares from the meeting place to each walks starting point.

It is recommended to wear comfortable, but suitable footwear, and to bring a packed lunch to go with a drink at the lunch-time pub or picnic stop.

Walks Organiser:  Valerie Clark  Tel: 020 8868 0096.    Email: valerie@clark.co.uk

 

when booking a place on a walk please email: valerie@clark.co.uk or telephone 020 8868 0096, if possible, on the Thursday prior to the walk so we can let the Rambling Group know how many members will be attending the walk. Places to those wishing to bring a guide dog will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Any Member arriving late and missing the appointed train cannot expect the host Rambling Group to wait beyond the planned starting time of the walk. Therefore, it is unreasonable for any Member to ring our co-ordinator to ask them to wait behind for a later train.

The Club has arranged Third Party Public Liability Insurance.

All sporting and rambling activities have inherent hazards. The safety of members being the paramount concern, accidents may occasionally occur. Therefore, it is important that when on rambles each member appreciates that they have a responsibility to identify the hazards and take all reasonable steps to eliminate or minimize the potential for an accident to arise.

Guide Dog owners are responsible for the care and control of their own dog. The Club is not liable for any problem or accident that their dog may cause. In the event of any claim, the guide dog owner must refer the matter to the Guide Dogs Association who have Insurance to cover such an event.
