Joining an East Dorset Group Walk

All you have to do to join an East Dorset Group walk is to go to the given start point ten minutes or more before the given start time.

Most of our walks do not require you to book a place but occasionally a leader wishes to restrict the numbers on a walk. If this is so, any booking procedure will be made clear in the information about the walk that you can find either in our programme or online. If you are new to The Ramblers, on arrival find out which of the waiting people is the leader and introduce yourself.

Dogs are allowed on most East Dorset Group walks but if you do bring a dog, you must keep it under control. Some ramblers do like dogs, others do not and do not want dogs running around them. Some stiles are not equipped for dogs to go under them, which may cause problems if your dog is a big one. If a leader does not want dogs on his or her walk, the information on the walk either online or in the group programme will make this clear.

Because of the possibility of a cancellation due to self-isolation of the leader, walkers are advised to check with GWEM (the Group Walks and Events Manager) as near as possible to the time of the walk to see if it is still taking place.

Joining walks in bad weather

Before you set out for any of our walks soon after heavy rain, or in poor weather conditions, it would be worth your while to check the current situation on a suitable local website.

If you are concerned that extreme weather conditions might prevent a walk taking place, you can contact the relevant leader in advance of setting out (the phone numbers are in the Group programme and a contact number or email address is given with each walk posted online). In such cases, please consider the road conditions that you could encounter on your way to the start and also for getting home if conditions deteriorate.
