Reminders for old and new members
Members are reminded that while you do not require any prior experience of fellwalking, it does demand some specialist equipment, including walking boots with good ankle support and waterproofs to keep you dry. The Society will provide all group and safety-related gear, but is unable to issue personal equipment; therefore, you are expected to supply this yourself. All members must arrive for walks with boots, full waterproofs and an appropriate rucksack to hold all other items, including insulating layers to keep you warm and sufficient food and water for the day. Members should also note that jeans are not permitted and must not be worn on walks under any circumstances. If you have any problems sourcing your own gear or need some advice about a piece of kit, please get in touch with a committee member who will be happy to help.
