Clitheroe Ramblers Walk Leaders evening.

On Thursday, 18 August Clitheroe walk leaders met in West Bradford to adopt the newly revised General Guidelines for walk leaders. Walk leaders enjoyed a presentation on the various aspects of planning walks and dealing with any unexpected issues whilst on the walk. After the presentations by group members, there was an open discussion session to allow leaders to identify areas for further consideration. There were many positive and helpful recommendations to help promote enjoyable and safe walks.  A further part of the initiative was to issue walk leaders with a safety pack that included first aid kit, torch, whistle, foil blanket and Hi Viz vest. Walk leaders who were unable to collect their safety kit on the evening will be able to collect a pack from any of the committee members at the start of their walk. The evening was rounded off with leaders enjoying a buffet provided by the social committee members. Many thanks to the social committee and walk leaders for their support and contributions to a very successful evening, which was organised by Tony Mountain,Walks Coordinator.
