Becoming a Leader

Mentors for new leaders

Click Here for New Leaders Checklist

New leaders can benefit from the help of mentors who will help in trip preparation and guidance on the day

Our club is lucky that we have experienced people to draw on.

Mentors can provide local knowledge that you may not have, act as the whip and generally assist with the overall conduct of the activity. You can contact anyone on the list below, or ask the Walks Coordinator to suggest someone.

Another approach is to begin by co-leading. One person does the administrative work, (booking people in, etc) and the other provides the actual knowledge about the walk.

Here is a list of those who have volunteered to be mentors.
