EventsAll our events are listed on the South Herts Hikers Meetup Group. We also have an Events Page for further information about selected events such as weekends away.
You can join our group by clicking 'Join Us' on the Meetup Group. You then become a prospective member and you can attend our events. There is currently no annual membership fee but from 1st Oct 2018, we invite a voluntary donation of £1 per person for standard one-day events such as a day hike. The £1 donation does not include any cost of travel, meals, accommodation, etc.
You don't need to pay when you sign up for a standard one-day event, you can pay cash on the day and for standard one day events, there is nothing to pay if you cancel.
We also have a few special one-day events such as a day hike where we also book a meal at a pub or restaurant. For these, we collect non-refundable deposits in advance and we invite a voluntary donation of £2 per person to cover the additional organisation and costs of collecting online payment.
We also organise weekends away, where you can sign up and reserve a place provisionally without payment but you need to pay for accommodation before your place is confirmed. For weekends away, there is normally a charge if you cancel.
Your donations contribute towards the running costs of the Group, which is run by volunteers on a not-for-profit basis.Please see the Membership page for further details.
