Valeways

Led Walking Programme

November - December 2020 Walking Programme

Valeways were pleased to recommence walks in August 2020 but suspended them from Friday 23rd October to Sunday 8th November in line with the 'firebreak' lockdown, and now they recommence again on 9th November 2020. 

A Covid-19 risk assessment has been written that will be used alongside the usual Walk Leader's risk assessment to provide a safe walking experience. 

Please click here to read the Valeways Walkers Covid-19 Guidelines, which must be followed.

Visit this website and our Facebook page to receive updated news. In the meantime, enjoy walking safely by following the Welsh Government advice

Where possible we advise you should also:
  • avoid touching surfaces with your hands, consider wearing gloves.
  • consider using alternative routes that do not pass through gardens or farm yards where social distancing may be difficult or the possibility of entering an isolation area.
  • consider avoiding popular locations and busy times of day if you can.
