The Group needs walk leaders, so in addition to those members who already volunteer on a regular basis, we encourage members who have not led before to do so. We therefore have a training programme covering navigation, map-reading and walk-leading skills.

Our friend Derek Jones offers navigation courses for walkers to the "National Navigation Award Scheme" level. These are held in the Shirley Methodist Church, 257 Stratford Road, Shirley.

There are two courses: Level 1, Bronze (Mondays, £40) and Level 2, Silver (Fridays, £50). Each course leads to a NNAS (National Navigation Award Scheme) qualification.

The cost of the Level 1 course will be re-imbursed by the Group for anyone who subsequently leads at least one walk for us. Please see any member of the Committee about this.

If you would like to attend one of these courses then contact Derek directly. You will find full details of dates and location as well as his contact details in Derek's latest poster.
