This is a group for those who love walking, talking and the countryside.
Have you always wanted to explore the smaller villages of Hertfordshire, but just never got around to it? Do you work in London and want to get out in the fresh air every now and again? Do you already enjoy walking but want the opportunity to socialise with new and interesting people at the same time? Well this meetup could be for you, as we like to walk to don't want to make it work.
Outings will be scheduled every three to five weeks and use maps and written instructions to navigate around the circuits. We would like to pre-walk the routes in advance, but honestly don't often have the time, so please bear with us and appreciate that we want it to be walk not work.
There is a small admin fee for each meetup event to cover the administration costs charged by meetup.com, so we aren't looking to profit from the group.
As a bit of a disclaimer neither of us are trained walking instructors and are organising the walks primarily as a route to allow us to walk, while hopefully making friends along the way. We are also looking to walk on relatively straight forward terrain and will include a description in the walk section. However, we ask participants to be sensible and take responsibility for themselves, so please ensure you are fit enough for the walk. If it doesn't feel right please don't do it is my adage. Sorry to be a pain, but as the walks are getting rather large now, there will be a range of people attending and its probably the time to make this point.
We'll give a bit of lee way after the scheduled start time for late arrivals and in the winter don't want to be waiting round in the cold, so if you are unable to attend the event please cancel your acceptance in advance. Finally, given we are now having substantial waitlists, if people cancel very late or don't show on three occassions (yes we have ways of knowing this) we will discontinue their group membership - sorry to get heavy - but just trying to be fair.
We now have a facebook group - please see details below.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Fiona and Laura
