SUWC Update: Return to walks!

We're back!

That's right folks, we are (cautiously) returning to hosting walks again! Current Government rules allow groups of 6, so it will be the same format as before (1 leader, 5 participants per group.)

SUWC Current COVID Safe Policies

All members of the walk party are required to provide contact details for track and trace use (we'll send you the form once you've signed up). This information will be stored by the club for 21 days after the walk. We will also require all members to confirm they're not showing any symptoms of coronavirus; we ask that if you are required to self-isolate, you let us know so that we can
offer your space to another walker.

If anyone with concerns about this, feel free to contact us.

The safety of our walks is top priority; as such, everyone will be allocated a team (A, B, C or D). Each team will have one leader and we ask that teams do not mix at any point throughout the day. Within the teams, social distancing must be practiced.

In-person SUWC Social!!!

Meet by Weston Park Museum, bring a takeaway, a drink or just yourself for a chat with other club members. No sign-up as it's not an official club activity: We'll split into groups of 6 as people arrive and make a list of who turns up :)

Bring more layers than you think you need!!!

Over the next few weeks, we plan to alternate between parks, pubs and online socials depending on the weather and other circumstances.
