Walk leader training with the Ramblers in Bedfordshire
Sunday, 26 August 2012 from 10:00 to 16:00 (BST)
Bedford, United Kingdom
The stunning location of the Chellington Centre, near Carlton in Bedford has been chosen for our walk leader training day in this beautiful county. The centre provides unrivalled access to the Harrold Odell Country Park, which is quite literally on the doorstep and will provide the perfect environment for learning all there is to know about becoming a walk leader for the Ramblers.
The day will begin at 10am (registration from 9.30am) and will be hosted by Walks Leader Karen Inkster. The morning will be based in the classroom and will cover a variety of subjects including communication, health and safety as well as dealing with emergencies and what is and is not covered by insurance.
In the afternoon, the groups will move out into the fields and put into practice the skills which have been gleaned in the morning. It is hoped that a walk which discovers the beauty of the Harrold Odell Country Park will form part of the training. It is expected that the day will finish at approximately 4pm.
There is car parking at the Chellington Centre, but where possible delegates are asked to car share.
All delegates are asked to bring a packed lunch with them. Tea and coffee will be provided throughout the day (although this is on a DIY basis!)
Please remember that although the training will be taking place in August, it is advisable to dress for the weather. The training in the field will take place rain or shine so appropiate clothing is required.
Everyone who completes the training will be awarded a certificate of achievement. It is then hoped that those delegates who have attended the day will be keen to lead their own walks and become fully embraced with the Ramblers.
This is a free event.
