Our Next Walk (click walk title for details)
These notes are sent out a few days before each walk to help people decide whether it is a suitable walk for them.

GOOD NEWS! WE CAN WALK AGAIN!
As pandemic restrictions are progressively lifted, Boots N' All can begin walking again, providing that we observe all requirements regarding travel distance, total numbers and social distancing that are current at the time of the particular walk. The stages and conditions can be read on the Tasmanian Government
Roadmap to Recovery site
and are subject to review if there are renewed outbreaks of Covid-19 which might mean walks might be cancelled or modified at short notice.

June 6 (long weekend) - No plan for a walk yet

Phil, on furlough from mission work in Nigeria, took the opportunity to head for the delights of the Labyrinth and on to Walled Mountain. Nereus didn't happen, made up for by heights of the DuCane Range and north Geryon .

Coming soon...
We are in the process of re-organising our walks calendar to fit in some that were missed during the pandemic shutdowns. See our Walks Calendar for a preview of what should be coming up.

Information for Leaders working with Children and Youth:
Boots N’ All, as part of Scripture Union Tasmania, is very happy to work alongside leaders working with children and young people to extend your options for healthy and safe activities for your group. Why not consider whether once or twice a year, your group could participate in a Boots N’ All walk? If you are thinking of bringing a group on a walk, it is a good idea to be in touch well in advance so that we can check safety requirements such as adequate adult-child ratio, availability of leaders who meet Childsafe requirements, transport arrangements, availability of a qualified first aid person and whether the children and young people will be adequately equipped for the particular walk.
