All regular walkers should consider joining the Peak and Northern Footpath Society. Or at least making a donation or bequest to contribute towards the preservation of the footpath network that we all enjoy. For a few hundred pound you can have your own dedicated sign put up like these in the photos.
Take a look at the Peak and Northern Footpaths Society website

Constitution of Roy's Roams

This cordial walking group started in April 2007 and is aimed at my friends who seek an intimate and relaxed approach to joining walks with no membership fees, no registration procedures and no particular rules about bringing dogs.

Although many members of the group are in couples many are single. There is nothing prescriptive about this, it is just the make up that has evolved. We are NOT a singles group.

To join Roy's Roams you should already be "a walker" and be known personally to Roy either now or in the past. Guests invited by and accompanied by an existing member are welcome.
Attendance will incur no obligation or permanent membership and participants will not be expected to support every walk or carry a membership card.

The basic itinerary of Roy’s Roams offers at least one walk every month usually on a Sunday with a fairly wide variety of locations, grades and distances although moderate all day walks of around 7 or 8 miles requiring packed lunches are the norm. Occasionally, there will be short easy walks of around 5 miles. If members are available mid week, Saturday, half day or evening walks are possible.

There are also a regular social events like meals out and at least once a year a weekend away.

If you would like to receive further information please contact Roy and say what is the best way of keeping in touch. If possible provide an email address that you use. If you want to make any suggestions or contributions about the walks or their organisation then please feel free to do so.

Needless to say you will join these walks at your own risk, myself or other walk leaders cannot take any responsibility for your personal safety, loss or damage howsoever caused.
