Off – On – Off

After many weeks of lockdown, I was quite happy a few days back with the news that LDWA group walks could take place under the latest coronavirus restrictions.

I spotted a local walk on my local group’s webpage, around Birmingham’s canals on Jan 2. I emailed the organiser to check that it was actually on and received good news an hour or so later.

Today, I received an email from one of my neighbouring groups …

So there we have it – no group walks in Tier 3.

COVID TIERS

Currently, England is split into three tiers with all but Cornwall, The Scilly Isles and the Isle of Wight in the two highest tiers (2 and 3) with restrictions on the number of people you can interact with and having to close the pubs in tier 3.

Hopefully the situation will change soon and group walks can restart in the new year. Even better would be the ability to resume challenge walks but that is some way off I think. I am booked on the A Coventry Way walk in April but I can see that getting pushed back to later in the year.
