Along with the rest of the community we, the Ben Cruachan Walking Club committee, are concerned about and monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and are thinking of you, your families and friends. The safety and health of our members, visitors and the Victorian community are our first priority - we are following the advice of health experts, the government and Bushwalking Victoria.

Based on this advice the committee have decided to cancel all face-to-face activities to at least the end of June including all walks, the May Club Night and the June Committee meeting as of Wednesday 1 April. We will continue preparations for FedWalks2020 (November) as far as possible.

We look forward to everyone resuming and enjoying bushwalking and outdoor activities when it is safe and appropriate to do so.
