Meeting outside Stoneywood Scout Hut 10:30am:,-2.1830997,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xbf60daad77affe56!8m2!3d57.1864938!4d-2.1830997 Expectant parents welcome too :) Babies can be carried or in a pram / buggy - we really don't mind :) We will begin walking by 10:33am so please be on time :) We have tried to make this walk as safe as possible by doing a risk assessment of the route. It is a quiet route with ramps available throughout and only two roads to cross - one with traffic lights, one with a Zebra crossing. There are plenty of open spaces, however there is a little stream running through it so please be mindful of this, and if you have children who can walk, advise and monitor them too. We estimate the walk will take an hour, you may leave at any time but do let us know if you leave early. We reserve the right to ask a walker to leave the walk if they are displaying symptoms that could be related to Coronavirus. There are no public toilets in the vicinity. There may be dog walkers, cyclists and other walkers. Please be mindful of maintaining a safe distance at all times. By booking this walk and taking part, you are agreeing the following: You won’t take part in the walk if you should be self-isolating, or are displaying symptoms that could be signs of the Coronavirus. Your details will be stored for Track and Traces Purposes and used in this way if deemed necessary. You will only walk if you are fit and well enough. If you have any concerns about your ability to participate in the walk, you’ll talk to a health professional before attending. You’ll tell Close and Calm if you feel unwell while out on the walk or if you are leaving the walk before it has ended. You’ll cover your nose and mouth if you need to cough or sneeze and will put used tissues in a bin. You’ll use hand gel or wash your hands as soon as you get home. If you develop Coronavirus symptoms following the walk, you’ll notify Test and Protect teams of your contact with the group and pass on details of the Close and Calm. You are responsible for your little one, including correctly carrying them. If you have any concerns about how to use your carrier correctly, read the manufacturer’s instructions and then if still unsure seek advice from Close and Calm in advance.
