Sadly due to Coronavirus our events are cancelled meantime. Plenty of photos there for you to revisit some of our events! Hope to be back again soon.
Some groups, but not all, have restarted walking under Covid 19 guidelines. Each group will have at least one trained Covid Officer who will collect names and contact details in case Track and Trace need them.
The Covid Officer should complete Sportscotland's e-learning module which provides key information and guidance to support groups with the safe return to physical activity.
