If you are vegan (or vegan-friendly!), and enjoy walking, hiking, rambling, foraging, and getting out into the countryside, then this group is for you!
The group is aimed at people of many levels, with some walks being very accessible and gentle, and others being more challenging. We're doing it for the love of walking and getting outdoors, rather than racing each other up hills, though. Many walks will be dog friendly, and we will also do walks that will be especially geared towards dogs and their humans. So look out for these, if you have dogs!
The walks we do will often be around the Peak District, as that's our side of the world, but they won't be exclusively there, and (vegan) group members are welcome to organise their own walks in other areas, too. So, get involved and get organising if you'd like to do walks in particular areas!
Everyone is welcome to join us, vegan or nonvegan, but our only request to nonvegans is that they bring only vegan food and vegan drink for packed lunches on walks, out of respect for the beliefs of the vegan group members. Give us a shout if you need ideas :-)
Hope to see you soon on a walk or hike!
Disclaimer: Walks and hikes in this group are taken entirely at your own risk. No responsibility can be taken by the group or the walk leaders for any accidents or issues that occur during a walk or hike. Please ensure you are properly equipped and dressed (i.e. walking boots, not trainers; walking trousers, not jeans), for any of the walks you attend, and you have food, water and waterproofs.
NB: As of January 2017, to assist in paying the annual Meetup fees, an approximate £1 or £2pp donation - payable to the walk leader - will be appreciated on each walk. This is not compulsory, but if you have enjoyed the walk and being part of the group, it would be gratefully received.
