Easing of Covid-19 Restrictions - effective 19th July 2021

Posted on 2021-07-14

The National Executive Committee met yesterday to discuss the implications of the easing of Covid-19 restrictions taking effect from 19 July 2021 in England.


For both Social Walks and Challenge Events, the LDWA has not applied any Covid-19 restrictions in addition to English Government guidance. Event organisers, walk leaders and walkers must exercise caution and take personal responsibility for complying with English Government guidance.


The 'Leading Local Group Walks' and 'Guidelines for Challenge Events' best practice documents are currently being reviewed to reflect the latest guidance and may be used by organisers as appropriate to ensure the smooth and safe running of any activity.


More details of the changes can be found here.


The National Executive Committee are in consultation with Local Groups based in Scotland and Wales to discuss how lifting of national restrictions could apply to Social Walks and Challenge Events.


The National Executive Committee would like to thank members for their patience over the last 16 months in trying to recommence organised activities.
