Wealden Waters event

The Kent LDWA are organizing the Wealdon Waters event on 26 and 27th July. The 100km event is for the 40th anniversary of Kent group.

They have asked for London group volunteers to assist at the start and finish. The HQ will be at Hawkenbury pavilion, a new building still under construction, but (we are assured !) will be completed in good time. It is in Tunbridge Wells. The postcode is TN2 5AS.

The Marshals’ Walk has been set for Saturday 28th. and Sunday 29th. June, 2014.

Dogs on walks

London Group Policy for Dogs on Walks

  1.  The decision to allow dogs on a walk rests clearly with the walk leader.
  2. A walk leader can state that their walk is not suitable for dogs by stating ‘no dogs allowed’ or ‘assistance dogs only’ in the walk description.
  3. If there is no notification that dogs are not allowed in the walks description, dogs will be considered to be allowed subject to points 4 and 5 below.
  4. All dogs on walks MUST be covered by the owner’s liability insurance. The walk leader should check with the dog owner at the beginning of the walk that the dog is covered by the owner's liability insurance. Verbal assurance is sufficient. If there is no liability insurance the dog will be excluded from the walk.
  5. The walks leader can insist that a dog be on a lead for all or certain parts of the walk.
