Cedars Walking Group

Cedars Walkers


Coronavirus Covid-19

Due to the coronavirus Covid-19 crisis our walking programme has been suspended until further notice and our residential in May has been cancelled although we hope to reschedule it at a later date.

The leaders recognise the value of walking for our physical and mental health and encourage members of the group to continue exercising where practicable and safe to do so. However current advice is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives. If you are walking on your own or with another person not living at the same address you should maintain "ample social distance" - stay at least 2 metres apart from others.

Don't take risks. Keep well, keep safe.
