The Walks List is issued three times each year and includes notices for evening meetings, the annual lunch and AGM agenda.
Walks normally take between 3 and 5 hours, including a break for a self-catered packed lunch.
The walk details will mention those occasions when a pub lunch is planned.
Suitable clothing and footwear are essential.
You walk at your own risk.
Whenever possible please car-share to minimise parking problems.
Dogs must be kept under close control at all times preferably at the back of the party with the exception of the leader’s dog.
In extreme weather conditions walks may be cancelled. Please telephone the leader at least one hour in advance if you think the weather conditions may cause cancellation.
PLEASE carry secateurs —- By cutting small brambles back as they appear there are fewer larger growths to remove later.
If anyone knows of a path within the original West Penwith area which is blocked by vegetation or obstructions, or even blocked for a short time due to cropping please let the Society’s Rights of Way Officer know for future clearing days. Rjandgrogers@btinternet.com
The WCFPS is affiliated to the Ramblers Association
The Ramblers Association is inviting members to get involved in creating and checking route cards. These will be submitted to the RA via www.ramblersroutes.org and checked by other members before being included in the database to be available to the general public on www.ramblers.org.uk
Cotswold Outdoor in Truro have offered West Cornwall members a 15% discount on full price products, just mention Code AF-WCFPS-G8. They are a friendly well trained bunch of people and have a good range of walking equipment especially walking boots.
The West Cornwall have joined “The Walking Partnership” with Ramblers Holidays. Go to the website which provides lots of information on the Ramblers Holidays offered www.ramblersholidays.co.uk
The idea is that when a West Cornwall member books a Ramblers walking holiday they will in return make a donation
to our Society of £30 / £20 / £10 pp for World, Europe and UK holidays.
All you need to do is tell them you are a member of the WCFPS when you are booking your holiday.
