Request for Walk Leaders for next 30s-50s Walks Programme - November 2017 to February 2018

Dear BAHR members,

Believe it or not, the time has come for me to plan the winter programme, from November 2017 to February 2018, covering the 17 Sundays listed below. Once again I am asking for help from both new and previous leaders to share a favourite walk or explore a new walk in an area that interests you. Walks can be led individually or jointly, by anyone who is a paid-up member of the Ramblers. 

If you have any questions / want any help in planning a walk then if you can please sign up to come along to our New Walk Leaders Planning Meeting on 14th September (please see separate announcement with more details).  No special training is required to lead a walk and you do not have to make up a walk from scratch – there are many guidebooks and also many walks available on the internet.  In addition walk leaders are often happy to share their walks and do a recce with you - please speak to one of our existing walk leaders or feel free to contact me by replying to this e-mail.

I am still looking to offer the choice of at least two different walks on Sundays, with ideally at least one walk with a public transport option (PT), as an alternative to cars required (CR). There is a demand for shorter walks of between 5-8½ miles (S), either morning or afternoon, as well as our longer day walks which can be anything between 9-15 miles (L).

Can you please send an email as soon as possible to 30s50s-walks@bahr.org.uk with your preferred date(s) from the list below, where possible indicating L or S and PT or CR (and also if known the starting place).   This announcement will be updated on a regular basis in order to show the latest availability.

Can you please also complete details of your walk on the Ramblers' specially designed template, which can be downloaded from http://bahr.org.uk/page/programmes (you will first need to sign-in to the main BAHR website).

The relevant .xls file can be opened/edited in Microsoft Excel, and a number of alternative apps. Apache OpenOffice is available as a free download for PCs and Macs, and Kingsoft WPS Office is available as a free download for Android, iPhones, iPads and Windows. Simply hover your cursor over the column headings in the spreadsheet to see what data is required in each cell.

Can you please complete the template with all relevant information and then forward your saved MS Excel file as an email attachment to 30s50s-walks@bahr.org.uk as soon as possible and at the latest by Sunday 1st October 2017. Please remember to include your Ramblers membership number. (If you have any questions about / problems with the template please e-mail me).

Many thanks in advance for your prompt responses to enable me to put together a comprehensive programme!

Morning Colin

Just to say Catherine and I are walking our walk tomorrow so we should have the full details to complete the Excel sheet and forward this to you on Monday.
Kind regards
