This is a group for those who love walking, talking and the countryside. Ages 18+.
Have you always wanted to explore the smaller villages of Hertfordshire, but just never got around to it? Do you want to get out in the fresh air every now and then? Do you already enjoy walking, but want the opportunity to meet new and interesting people at the same time?
Walks will usually be on relatively level terrain and a brief description of the walk will be given in the announcement. Participants are asked to be ensure that they fit enough for the walk and are wearing appropriate clothing and foot-ware for the prevailing weather conditions.
As you are aware, MeetUp charge a subscription fee, which I have to pay (as the group organiser) in order to keep the group going. In the past, it has been difficult to cover this fee when charging a £1.50 fee per walker for each event. This has proved even more difficult during the pandemic. I therefore am proposing to introduce a voluntary annual membership fee of just £2.50 (commencing May 2021). This group is not run to make a profit and the fees charged are purely to cover the mounting MeetUp costs.
There will be two benefits for being a fully paid-up member: 1) You will not have to pay for each walk you attend (basically two walks per year and you are saving money) and 2) You will be prioritised when RSVP'ing to events. Any non-paying members will have to join a wait-list if the event is fully booked. This group is proposing to host a minimum of two walks per month (a long walk of about 10 miles and a shorter walk of 6/7 miles). We may also try to host some mid-week evening walks. During the winter months, the number of walks will decrease due to the weather. We will also increase the number of walkers per event as soon as Government guidelines permit this.
If you would like to become a fully paid up member, can you please make payment using PayPal to email@example.com, using the friends and family option. I will then amend your membership status to Full Member 2021 to confirm receipt. If you do not use PayPal, please let me know.
If you do not wish to become a fully paid up member, that is absolutely fine but a £1.50 fee will apply for each walk you attend (where there is space).
Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the other organisers.
