Walking

Leading a Walk

 
The walk leader
 
A leader is assigned by the Walks Secretary to organise and lead each walk.
 
The leader organises the walk, has the authority of the Club for leading the walk and makes the final decision as to who may attend the walk. The leader’s advice should be followed by those attending the walk.
 
It is up to all to assist the leader and to help other party members who may have forgotten to bring a necessary piece of clothing or equipment or who may be finding a walk more difficult than expected.
 
Where the party is large (say >8) it is expected that one member of the party will volunteer to assist the leader and walk at the rear of the party to help the slower walkers.
