Warden leaders will take all reasonable care and precautions, but each walker is ultimately responsible for their own safety and for determining their capability to complete the chosen walk. Only assistance dogs are allowed on these walks. All walks by the Voluntary Wardens are FREE OF CHARGE however donations are welcome and help us to take care of the countryside.
