DDS Summer Walks Programme 2022

If you are interested in any of the walks, you must register at least 2 days before the walk. Unfortunately, DDS is unable to provide transport. However, we will try and match you with a lift if possible.

If you can provide someone else a lift to a walk, please let us know.  Mileage claims are available to help with the cost of petrol if you are providing lifts as a volunteer.
