Nature Walks

John Wells is a local naturalist and friend of Ealing Transition. He leads regular walks around the borough to help people gain a deeper appreciation of nature.

Please note that we are all responsible for our own health and safety during any of these events.

May I request that should you decide to join me on any of these events then please could you kindly email me on johnwells3@hotmail.co.uk or text/telephone 07506655352 confirming your name, which event, where joining us, how many people plus your email address or telephone number. The purpose of this arrangement is to give me an idea as to who to expect and how many people will be in our group. Also, this arrangement will tell me whom I need to contact in the case of having to postpone or cancel an event owing to increment weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Also, it would be gratefully appreciated if you could kindly advise me of your intention to join any particular event by at least 2pm the day before the actual event takes place. This is because I have had a couple of instances where I decided to cancel an event owing to the lack of takers, then suddenly a barrage of people wish to sign up at the last moment. Like all people I know who organise such events, we do enjoy an audience as they are a social event and of course this makes it all the more worthwhile for us organisers.
