Our walks are designed to be safe and welcoming for everyone.

We ask that you please:

  • Accept others without judgement.
  • Look after each other – e.g. go at the slowest person’s pace.
  • Be responsible for yourself. We share responsibility for making our walks wonderful.
  • If there are any issues, let Christine Coker, the walk leader, know.
  • Please ensure that you treat staff and participants with respect. Abusive and discriminatory behaviours of any kind will not be tolerated.
  • Remember that conversations, although outdoors, still remain confidential.
  • This is a space where wellbeing is prioritised and emotions and feelings are discussed. Christine Coker is a trained mindfulness practitioner but she is not a qualified therapist. Guidance on where to find mental health support is available should you need this.
