Advice and Guidance Day – 24th Feb

Location -Javea Studio Theatre, Carrer Cronista, Figueras Pacheco, Javea 03730 Alicante.

If you enjoy walking with the CBMW have you thought about giving a little back to the group? We are really keen to get walkers more actively involved so we can continue to offer a variety of walking grades.  Why not move from walking in the group to walking at the front?  You will undoubtedly get a lot of satisfaction from doing it and also a lot of gratitude from the walkers on your walk.  Try it for one walk or as many as you are comfortable with.  Do not worry about lacking experience or not knowing how to navigate or any other concerns you may have.  If you are willing to help us then we will ensure that you are helped to get to a level that you are happy with.  Is there a walk you like, why not lead it?  We are ready to get you comfortable in leading whichever level of walk suits you.  Our current leaders are willing to share any of their walks.  We are also organised to provide mentors and support on your walks.  You will not be left on your own!.  We are holding an advice and guidance session/meeting where you can join other walkers/leaders and chat through your issues/concerns as well as listen to how to guide a walk successfully. The meeting will be held at the Studio Theatre, Javea on 24 February starting at 10.00am.  There will be no obligation to lead but if you are available then you would certainly find it interesting.  

The Agenda is :

1.Open Discussion – Veronica Dunkley

2. What to consider before, during and after your walk. This will include walk safety, how to plan a walk, carry out a recce, manage tricky situations and how to use our web site – Jo Fletcher
