Walk on the Wild Side: Ellis Meadows
On Wednesday 19 August, 10am
Up to 90 minutes, steady pace
Meeting location will be confirmed on booking.
Booking opens Monday 17 August at 9am.
Participant places: 5.
Join an experienced wildlife expert to explore the meadows and learn about the different types of plants, insects and other wildlife that live here.
Our groups are smaller than before so booking is essential – see ‘how to book’ below. Please do not turn up at walks if you have not booked – we regret you will be turned away.
In this weather, remember to take a bottle of water and to dress appropriately for the weather (sun hat, sunscreen etc) as there may be very little shade in some locations.
Groups will be smaller than before – a maximum of 5 participants with one walk leader. This complies with current government guidance that no more than 6 people from different households can meet outdoors in a public space, and helps keep groups manageable. To allow opportunities to others, a maximum of 2 people from the same household/ support bubble may attend. We are sorry that we cannot accommodate more people at this time. Please follow instructions for booking places and also observe the guidance below with regards to Covid-19.
Covid-19 and group walks
- Please do not attend a walk if you or someone in your household/support bubble has symptoms of Covid-19. Instead, please stay home and self-isolate. See the latest information on the NHS website about self-isolating and obtaining a test.
- If you develop symptoms within 14 days of attending a group walk, please let us know so that we can contact others.
- During walks, we kindly ask walkers to maintain the 2m social distancing from each other and members of the public (or at least 1m if you are wearing a face mask).
- Take hygiene precautions when you are outside (you may wish to carry your own hand sanitizer) and wash your hands as soon as you are back indoors.
If you have been unable to book onto one of our group walks, or you prefer to explore with your family or friends, self-guided routes are available to download from our routes page or via the Go Jauntly smartphone app. Enjoy exploring Leicester this summer.
