RECOMMENCING LDWA SOCIAL WALKS


RECOMMENCING LDWA SOCIAL WALKS - ENGLAND AND SCOTLAND

Further to our last guidance we are pleased to announce that some LDWA social walking activities can commence earlier than anticipated. Please see below for the situation in each of the regions. In all cases strict adherence to the relevant government legislation and guidance applies regarding travel and social distancing. In cases where activities commence the walks must be uploaded to the LDWA website, the walks register completed and uploaded and, in cases where numbers on the walk exceed 6, the walk must be LDWA Covid risk assessed. It is advised that all documentation is carried by the walk leader during the walk, either in paper or digital form.
Guidelines and templates are in the LDWA Toolkit under Social Walks https://ldwa.org.uk/library/toolkit.php#SocialWalks
