Ridware Work Party

Stile1 Stile2

On 19th February we visited Hill Ridware and Hamstall Ridware to replace some stiles. We couldn't reach the first site due to the depth of mud, but we replaced a complete stile at Hill Ridware and a step at Hamstall Ridware. Thanks to Tony 1, Tony 2, Kevin (on his first trip out) and Peter for their help, as well as Nigel who as usual provided the tools, materials and expertise.

Walking is Healthy

A recent study of 250,000 commuters showed that walking 6 miles a week is good for you, cutting the riskof cancer and heart disease. See BBC Health News

Walking Etiquette

At the recent AGM, different aspects of walking etiquette were raised by several people.  Just to make sure that things go smoothly in future and that we all look after each other:

1) Leaders – PLEASE don’t make walks significantly longer or harder than they are shown in the programme. If you don’t know how long or hard they are ask Phil to check them for you with Memory Map.

2) Leaders – When you stop to allow people at the back to catch up after a hard stretch PLEASE give those people a chance to rest before starting again.

3) PLEASE DON’T walk in front of the leader, unless you’ve asked first. The leader has to make sure that the slowest walkers are in sight, so can’t always go as fast as you’d like.

4) When you reach a turning point PLEASE make sure that you can see the people behind you and that they know where you’re going.  If possible the leader should post a ‘sentry’ to make sure everybody follows.

5) Similarly, when you pass through a gate in a field with animals in PLEASE DON’T leave it open, relying on people far behind to close it.  Wait, or post a sentry to look after it.

6) Finally, PLEASE be prepared to use your car when you go on the short walks.  The success of the scheme is going to rely on this.
