For consistency in our programmes, please use start points list for your walk start points.
Be aware that these are start points that have been used by East Dorset Group leaders but we cannot guarantee their quality. Many of them have had their grid references and post codes carefully checked recently by our Programme Co-ordinator. Further notes about them can be found here.BACK TO TOP
Please ask the Programme Co-ordinator or Leaders’ Co-ordinator whose email addresses are given in your programme for information on how to send in a walk.BACK TO TOP
An alternative to leaving a lot of vehicles parked along the narrow roads of a village is to contact the manager of the village hall and ask if we can use their car park on a certain day in return for a small donation. Add the requirement for a donation to the Comments line on your walk submission.

Once in the programme, walks should not normally be cancelled. If you are unable to lead a walk you have added to the walks programme, you should notify the Programme Co-ordinator or Leaders’ Co-ordinator whose email addresses are given in your programme. If finding an alternative leader to lead the walk is not possible, the walk will be noted as cancelled on the East Dorset Group Go Walking pages.
Rain by itself is not usually sufficient reason to cancel a walk but the leader can cancel the walk at his or her discretion if there might be safety issues for instance.
There may be other reasons than those above, such as illness, as to why a leader cannot attend or the numbers of walkers may be restricted. Members are now being advised to check that a walk is going ahead before setting out to join it by looking on Go Walking or by telephoning the walk leader.BACK TO TOP
If your problem does not merit a 999 call, police can be contacted using 101 instead.BACK TO TOP
