Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I haven’t signed up but I want to take part – can I sign up on the day?
A: Yes of course! Join us at the Estate before 9:45am with your £10 registration and will will get you signed up ready to join the rest of the walkers.
Q: Can I bring my dog?
A: Yes of course. Guide Dogs and pet dogs alike all welcome – however they will need to remain on leads for the whole event as it is a working estate.
Q: Will I need to bring any money?
A: Don’t miss out on the raffle! We have an amazing raffle taking place on the day with great prizes up for grabs, as well as the Ramblers Walks Book by Jane Aston for sale on the day. Please do bring cash for ease of payment at these stalls. All refreshments are included in your registration fee.
Q: What should I wear?
A: It’s a sponsored walk, not a fashion show! – Please wear suitable clothing and footwear for the conditions on the day. We’re hoping for a lovely, sunny day – so sun cream and hats might be an idea. Although we are in Britain, so equally a brolly and wellies / walking boots might be useful!
Please also bring a mask – Unless you are exempt, please wear a face covering at all times before and after the walk. If there is a queue at the halfway refreshment point, please pop your mask back on then too.
Q: How do I get to the event? and is there parking?
A: Post Code for satellite Navigation systems: BN18 9PX. There is parking on site and a marshal will be on hand to direct you to a space.
For those coming from the west along the A27, access is via Dover Lane, which is signposted turning off the north side of the A27 dual carriageway, about 2 miles east of Arundel.
For those coming from the east along the A27, there is no gap in the central reservation to turn into Dover Lane. You must therefore go past Dover Lane and make a U turn at Poling corner following signs for “Worthing/Brighton” and after ⅓ mile bear left into Dover Lane.
Once on Dover Lane, continue straight along the single-track road for quite a way. Do not use the first car park that you come to (on your right), there is one much closer. Follow signs for Dover Barn and, once close, our Wellbeing Walk signs.
Q: What is being done to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at the event?
A: Following the Government’s latest Covid-19 update on 14th June, we must ensure that all participants on the day follow the rules on social contact and physical distancing that are still in force. Hands, face, space.
You must not attend our Wellbeing Walk if you are unwell with any Covid-19 symptoms, have tested positive for Covid-19 recently or been in contact with someone who has tested positive recently. Covid-19 symptoms include a high temperature, a new continuous cough and the loss, or a change to your sense of smell or taste.
Everyone will be asked to regularly wash or sanitise their hands whilst at the event; we will provide sanitation stations and regularly clean touch points.
Please do feel free to bring your own hand sanitiser, gloves and first aid kit. We will have a first aid kit too, but for minor incidents (like the odd blister) you might like to use your own supplies.
Unless you are exempt, please wear a face covering at all times before and after the walk. If there is a queue at the halfway refreshment point, please pop your mask back on then too.
Please remain two metres apart from people who are not in your household or support bubble. Groups of up to 6 people or two households can walk together.
There will be a short briefing just before the walk starts to remind all participants of what to do.
