WHAT’S ON  2024!

NAV & NATTER

Half Day & Full Day

A taster session for complete beginners to get to know your map & open up a whole new world of walking. 

1st SATURDAY & 1st WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH FROM JANUARY 6 TO MARCH 2nd

9.30 to 1.30 

These will be half days only, full days available on request.

EXPLORER 1

Half Day & Full Day

A chance to refresh or develop your navigation skills. The perfect follow on from a Nav & Natter or if you already use maps & have some experience.

3rd SUNDAY & 3rd THURSDAY OF THE MONTH FROM JANUARY 18th to MARCH 21st.

9.30 to 1.30

Half days only during Winter, full days available on request.

Night Navigation

A fantastic confidence booster if you’ve done Nav & Natter or Explorer walk or already have some experience.  Sometimes walks can take longer than expected, or the fog comes in and you end up walking in poor visibility – a night nav session will give you more competence to deal with a poor viz situation. Plus, walking at night is a MUST for any keen walker – it brings your senses alive!

VARIOUS WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY & FRIDAY EVENINGS IN FEBRUARY AND MARCH, starting Thursday 22nd; 2 to 6 people

6pm to 9pm (times may vary)
