Management of the Club
The Club is managed by a committee elected at the Annual General Meeting. Any paid up member may seek election to the Committee. The Chair of the Committee shall be kept informed of all matters affecting the Club. These rules shall be kept under constant review.
A list of Committee Members and their contact details can be found on the Walks Programme, and www.derbynomads.co.uk.
Membership shall be open to all regardless of their origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion or age with sufficient fitness to be able to undertake the planned walks.
Conduct of Walks (and other activities)
Walkers must comply with the Club’s Child protection Policy which requires: ‘That all members and visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by their parent, guardian, or someone suitable “in loco parentis” on all walks and Club trips, and whose responsibility they will be’.
The person accompanying someone under age 18 must check that the child has suitable walking gear and any other requirement he or she may need during the walk, eg medication. They must also satisfy themselves that the walk is suitable for their child, as the Walk Leader / Club will not be responsible.
If during a Club walk a member requires the call out of any of the Emergency Services or hospital treatment then the walk leader or person observing the incident should submit a full account of it to the Chairman, Treasurer, and the person who required the services/treatment within a week or as soon as possible after the eventt. This shall be kept on file by the Club for a minimum of 7 years.
