Lancaster & Morecambe Walking Group

Breaking News:

We are resuming a programme of walks and our programme page has been updated with proposed walks until the end of December. We are still having to follow a strict set of Covid safe rules to enable us to put these walks on.

Walks will be limited to a maximum of 15 people (or as set by the walk leader).

Booking is ESSENTIAL. You must book directly with the leader as once the walk is fully booked there will be a waiting list. Also turning up on the day without booking you will be refused on the walk. If you have booked on a walk and find you are unable to attend please let the walk leader know as soon as possible so that the place is available to someone else.

As car sharing is not allowed (except for those in a “bubble”) the walk meeting place will be the start of the walk not our normal meeting point in Lancaster. I realise that this will be difficult for those who do not have transport however to enable us to resume walks we must follow this guidance.

The walk leader will require your full name and contact phone number as we are required to keep a record of everyone on the walk for a period of 21 days after the walk. After that period the information will be destroyed securely.

You must NOT attend a walk if you have any Covid-19 symptoms, are in a household with someone who has symptoms or have been told to self isolate.

It is suggested that you bring your own alcohol based hand sanitiser, face covering and a basic first aid kit.

Social distancing must be observed on the walk and you must not share food and drink or equipment such as walking poles.

It is also important that if you develop symptoms of Covid-19 within 48 hours of the walk that you must apply for a Covid-19 test and co-operate with NHS contact tracing if requested.

Above all, if you are concerned about the personal risk of participating in group walking, don’t!

There is no pressure to get involved.

Welcome to the Lancaster & Morecambe Walking Group Website.

We are a walking group in Lancaster & Morecambe and organise weekly walks in and around the Lancaster & Morecambe area,
the Lake District and surrounds.

Our walks are held each Sunday and are aimed to promote both physical and mental health for a varied range of people.
Full details of walks can be found on our programme page.

We do not run a paid membership scheme and all are welcome to come along and join in the walks.

Please note that it is important that anyone wishing to come on a walk must let the walks leader know by 8.00 pm on the Friday before the walk, and also that they must read the disclaimer notice.

For more information see the General Information page, or contact Steve or Paul.
