We generally meet at Staines Railway Station or Staines Leisure Centre or at the car park at Walton Bridge in order to share cars.
There is free parking in the Knowle Green area, although parking in the Leisure Centre car park is restricted. Therefore, we intend to continue use the Staines Leisure Centre as one of our meeting points.
As car sharing is voluntary, a lift to the start of the walk cannot be guaranteed. Please check with the walk leader if in doubt. Drivers often appreciate it when passengers make voluntary contributions. As a guide, 15p per mile – calculated on the outward trip only. Passengers, please remove or cover dirty boots and make sure your gear does not damage the driver’s car. Our thanks to the car drivers for their important role of taking members and prospective members to and from walks.
For car sharing, if the walk description says 'Meet at 9:30 for a car transfer to ...' this means that 9:30 is the departure time of the cars, so please arrive a few minutes early or phone the walk leader to say you are on your way to the meeting point.
