We started this Walks Week programme in 2020 when we were limited by the ‘Rule of 6’ in terms of size of walk groups and we had a few members step up as novice walk leaders to show a small group of other members around their local patch. Following really positive feedback on how group size allowed more interaction with the leader and allowed us to visit varied and smaller locations, we are continuing with this initiative this year, so are there any more VOLUNTEER LOCAL WALK LEADERS out there who would be interested in taking part and joining our walk leaders pool? We are looking for members who have an enthusiasm for their local patch, especially if it is in a ‘less-visited’ spot from our Locations list. If this could be you, give us a shout on nenbc@aol.co.uk.

Binoculars are recommended to gain full enjoyment from your birding and scopes can be useful but not essential. Stout footwear is recommended as paths may be slippery or muddy particularly after rain. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times but young people aged 16 and 17 may attend unaccompanied with prior written consent from a parent or guardian who has also supplied a phone number where they can be contacted in emergency. Sorry no dogs except guide dogs.
