Welcome to the Essex/Herts LDWA website
If you look in our calendar, you will see some of the events organized by our group. Only members of the LDWA are automatically allowed to participate in our social walks but, by arrangement, we welcome visitors who are not members. As our name implies, we do cover substantial distances on our walks and we do maintain a brisk pace across country using footpaths that may not be as well maintained as we would hope. Please send an e-mail to Peter Hogg if you would like to join us on firstname.lastname@example.org You will be very welcome subject to the above restrictions.
All challenge event entry forms and event results can be found under 'Entry Forms' and 'Event Results' on the' Home Page' toolbar. PLEASE DO NOT USE the Standard Entry Form (SEF)

Dogs on Walks: The LDWA has issued new guidance about dogs on walks - see this link: Policy on dogs. In compliance with these guidelines, announcements for each Essex and Herts walk will specify whether or not dogs (other than assistance dogs) are allowed. If they are, owners must have liability innsurance cover for their dogs. It is advised that walk organisers/leaders seek verbal assurance of the fact from their owners and remind them that it their responsibility to keep their dogs under control at all times.
Accident/Incident Reporting: The LDWA has issued new guidance on accident/incident reporting, which are available for downloading (see Accident/Incident Reporting on toolbar). It is strongly recommended that event organisers and walk leaders have available/carry a form with them on their events/walks.
First Aitl Kits: First Aid kits are always present at checkpoints on Challenge Events, however, participants are strongly advised to carry their own personal first aid kit on both social walks and challenge events to meet their immediate requirements until such time as appropriate medical assistance, if required, can be proviced.
