The background colour of the date is used to show different types of meeting:

  • Green is used for BDS and BDS Local Group field meetings and events.
  • Blue events have a BDS stand or speaker but the BDS is not responsible for the event itself - please follow any given links for details.
  • Yellow is for relevant non-BDS events, listed using information as it was provided to us. All details are solely under the control of the individual event organisers and may not get updated again here. We suggest you contact these organisers or follow the given links to confirm details.

For those leading events, the current BDS Risk Assessment and Walk Guidelines can be downloaded here. Walk leaders are advised to adapt the Risk Assessment if necessary. Only those events sent to us in advance and displayed on our website are covered by BDS insurance. It's therefore worth checking that your event is displayed before it takes place. An event can be advertised as only for local group members or limited to bookings only. Many thanks for your cooperation.
