Every year our Areas and Groups organise about 28,000 walks, each led by a volunteer walks leader. To ensure that these walks are safe, walks leaders often carry out a pre-walk ‘recce’, for which they may incur out-of-pocket expenses. Although we would like to be able to reimburse all such expenses, unfortunately we do not have sufficient funds available to do this. In practice, the vast majority of our walks leaders do not claim any expenses incurred in carrying out pre-walk recces, and we are very grateful for this.

 

However, we recognise that some walks leaders may not be able to afford to pay their own recce costs, and we recommend in this case that Areas and Groups meet any such reasonable expenses where claimed. We would not expect volunteers to have to provide evidence of their financial circumstances and as such, there is an element of trust in the individual concerned.

 

However, this national Ramblers Asscociation policy has been adapted for use by Wessex Wanderer Railway Walks,  as the national policy is not based on reimbursing public transport costs .  Therefore would leaders and co-leaders please read the A4 documents prior to pre-walking a walk and where appropriate inform the Walks Coordiantor if you wish to make a claim.  Each claim will be dealt with individually and privately.

 

Leaders and co-leaders would not be expected to provide evidence of their financial circumstances and each claim will be dealt with individually and privately.

 

If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Walks Coordinator direct.
