Latest COVID-19 Club Update - The Walk Forward
We have now set out a plan for the club to follow out of lockdown! This plan is split into two parts with each being subject to change alongside the Covid situation. The first part leads us up to the AGM (About the 15th of April) where we will handover to the next committee. Part 1 is as follows:
From 8th March - Two people from different households will be allowed to enjoy a picnic together provided they are 2 metres apart. We will try to give you all the opportunity to enjoy this by plotting our 'do it yourself' routes to include nice lunch spots and even some bluebell areas!
No earlier than 29th March - We are very hopeful that from this date, we will be able to restart our grouped walks which we unfortunately had to abandon back in November. We also hope that with the lifting of the 'Stay at Home' order, we will regain our key to the beautiful English countryside!
No earlier than 12th April - Though we cannot yet confirm this, it is possible that from the 12th of April that we will be looking into opportunities regarding both some form of phsyical socials and depending on the guidelines, some form of camping trip!
Getting hopeful to see you all soon!

Most weeks during the lockdown, we try to run an online social and try to inspire you with a local Southampton route for your daily breath of fresh air. Here's what's happening this week:
Walks ranging from 12 to 26km (occasionally more), usually every Saturday during term time.
These walks are open to everyone, the only cost is the train ticket and your lunch.Day Walks
Whole weekend trips once a month exploring some more remote areas of the UK.
Destinations include the National Parks (Lakes, Peak etc), Wales, Cornwall and Scotland.Away Trips
A chance to meet up with like minded individuals and have some walk-free fun!
Socials can involve almost anything: treasure hunts, ice skating and pudding socials have all featured in the past.Socials
