Safety News

Crossing Railway Tracks

In our area we have many rights of way that cross operational railway lines. Any recce should include an assessment of these high risk hazards when needing to cross such lines. Leaders must exercise extreme care and control of their group.

Network Rail produce a useful crossing safety leaflet. To view and download it click HERE

Animal Anxieties - Horses

We repeatedly advise of a need for care when walking near cows. A recent incident involving a Scarborough member being attacked by a horse is a reminder to take similar care when near equines. Harry Whitehouse of Ryedale Group has provided a brief report of the event. Click HERE to read it.
