Cancellation Policy

The organisers, Guide-Over-Sands Trust, advise that “it is sometimes necessary to cancel a walk at short notice if the guide, at his sole discretion, considers conditions out on the Bay to be dangerous. Whenever possible the guide will arrange an alternative route which necessities a different starting and/or finishing point”.

In the unlikely event of this 12 May Walk being cancelled, persons booking will be entitled to transfer their booking(s) to an alternative date, if available, or of requesting full reimbursement of moneys paid.  Beyond reimbursement of moneys actually paid, the Venus & Cupid Arts Trust  shall not be liable for any further costs incurred by persons who have booked a place or places on the Walk.

Notes

*  The organisers stipulate that “the walk is not suitable for children under eleven years old unless they are used to reasonably strenuous walks”.  They add that under 16’s should be accompanied by a responsible adult.  In this respect we ask that there be at least one adult for every two children in each party, as there are potential dangers if children should stray from the specified route.

†  There is a Sunday rail service from Kent’s Bank to Arnside, but it has a limited capacity and should not be depended upon for the return journey.  Trains depart Kent’s Bank at 15.15 and 16.20 for Arnside, Silverdale, Carnforth and Lancaster.

The earliest Sunday morning service FROM LANCASTER  to Arnside does not arrive until too late for the walk.  BUT there is a train from CARNFORTH TO ARNSIDE, leaving at 10:20, arriving 10:30.

§. Paypal booking form: you need to book each category of Walker (adult/child/etc, also coach seats) separately.  Then use “CONTINUE SHOPPING” to enter the second category, and so on.
