DVWG Statement - Coronavirus

Posted 17/3/2020

Sadly DVWG’s organising committee have decided to suspend all group walks and activities for a period of one calendar month, effective immediately from today, March 17th 2020.

We have taken this step in response to the current Coronavirus pandemic listening to the advice from the UK Government and observing the position of other larger organisations who promote country walking both nationally and locally.

We have also considered our own public liability position as a group of walk leaders and find that it is not possible to continue the current group programme of activities and be certain our walk participants are completely free from risks.

At this time as an organising committee DVWG are not recommending anyone  take part in walking activities in a large group for their own safety and will not lead groups on behalf of DVWG either formally or informally at this time.

Our current position will be reviewed in one calendar month, when hopefully we can re-instate group activities and indeed walking.

Thank you to everyone who currently supports DVWG walks and we ask for your understanding at this time and hope to be back walking with you all again in the very near future.
