1. Dress comfortably

It's not a forced march, but it's not a fashion parade. And sensible footwear is recommended.

2. It's as much about the talking as the walking.

Jane's Walks are a walking conversation, rather than a guided tour. It's a chance to get to know your community as well as your neighbourhood.

3. Sharing is good!

The walk leaders will know something about your area, and no doubt you do too. Contributing your knowledge and ideas about the area can enrich the experience.

4. Turn up and go.

Jane's Walk is about community and volunteering. It's free, and you don't need to RSVP or register. Just turn up at the right time and place and look for the walk leader.

5. Respectfulness and care rules.

Jane's Walk is about community and volunteering. Walk leaders give their time freely, usually motivated by wanting to make a contribution to their area and city. Please do as they ask and make sure everyone on the walk looks out for one another, especially in a big group.
