Constitution of Roy's Roams

This special walking group started in April 2007 and is aimed at my friends who seek a more intimate yet at the same time relaxed approach to joining walks as distinct from the rather prescriptive Northern Link scene. For example, we have no registration procedure and no strict rules about dogs.

Our walks are not intended to compete with or replace Northern Link walks but merely offer an alternative with an emphasis on letting couples feel at ease without having to mix with all "new comers" on the singles scene.

You do not have to be in a couple to join "Roy's Roams" but you must be a "walker" and have had a personal invitation from Roy or, an accompanied introduction by an existing member bringing a partner, relation or close friend.
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 8 miles requiring packed lunches are the norm. Occasionally, there will be short easy walks of less than 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.
