The Walking Club

BritsNîmes Walking Club


Wednesday 10 June 2020
Meet at 9.30 am for a 9.45 am start

Venue  :  Vic-Le-Fesq

The Walking Club is back - with new regulations.

The safety and health of our members is our top priority, so these rules must be strictly adhered to.
  • A maximum of 10 members only are permitted on the walk - so 9 plus myself, Veronique.
  • The walk is not open to anyone showing symptoms of Covid-19, who has returned from overseas less than 14 days previously or with pre-existing medical conditions.
  • Walkers must stay 2 metres apart during the walk.
  • Given the social nature of the walking club, visors are not compulsory but are highly recommended.  BritsNîmes has purchased a quantity of visors, for sale at €4 each.
  • Each member should bring their own water bottle, sanitising gel and walking stick.  Items cannot be shared.
This walk has been carefully researched and developed in order to comply with the new regulations, while remaining as interesting and appealing as previous outings.

A little hilly with wide paths, this walk is a pleasant loop of 9km – and as it’s not a well-known trail, it’s unlikely that we’ll meet any other walkers.
The loop starts at Vic, leads us to the priory of Notre-Dame de Prime-Combe, and then meanders through the garrigue, with spectacular views over the Pic Saint-Loup. On the way back along the river, we‘ll admire some outstanding oaks - one of them is even flagged in the book “Les Arbres Remarquables du Gard”.

Parking and starting point :

Chemin de la Tuilerie at the end of Grand Rue, Vic-Le-Fesq
Lunch : optional picnic, but social distancing measures apply
Registrations are limited to 9 participants and close on Sunday 8 June. If you’d like to attend this walk, please contact me as soon as possible by email me or phone 06 79 89 37 83,
Please note that as participation is very limited, applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis
