Information for all Walk Leaders :

Firstly, thank you so much for your help this year. We really mean it when we say that we couldn’t do this without you.

Please note that the website states ‘meeting times’ for walks. The walk is scheduled to leave 15 mins after this time. This should give walkers enough time to make a donation, use toilets, etc. and get themselves ready to leave (and many will arrive early, anyway).

A Risk Assessment form has been sent to you. Please return it a.s.a.p., and definitely before the date of your walk.

The latest booking figures are listed at the bottom of this page. Although our publicity machine is in full swing, anything you can additionally do to encourage people to attend the Walking Festival will be much appreciated.


During the Walking Festival we will again be having a second-hand walking book stall. If you have any books or magazines related to the outdoors that someone else might like, please bring them (it doesn’t have to be just Wales, of course). All profit goes towards securing next year’s Walking Festival. (If everyone brought even just one book, we’d have a decent show ….)

Please revisit this page every now and then for the latest news and info ……
