Help session for new or prospective LRWG walk leaders. Also suitable for current walk leaders who wish to learn smartphone walk leading skills.
Dreaming of sun kissed hillsides, the start of the midweek summer walks or wanting to try out new locations? Submissions for the Spring programme are due by
Monday 15th February. Come and join in the session and plan your walk at the same time. Feel free to sign up to a slot on the walks planning spreadsheet in advance and I can help you fill in the details.
The LRWG map library will also be open during the event for those that would like to borrow the matching OS maps. There will also be a chance to look at and photocopy walk details out of a variety of local walks books and pamplets.
It would be handy if you could bring a laptop if you have one, otherwise everyone will be trying to share. Android or iphones work best with the software we will be using (ViewRanger), but I'll show you how to use similar software for Windows phone if that is what you have. Fibre broadband will be available, I might even get in some cupcakes as well.
At the end there will be the chance for a short local walk around the village (trainers will be OK), to test out our new skills.
