Each person attending a field meeting does so on the understanding that he/she attends at his/her own risk. The MGA has Public Liability Insurance cover (including member-to-member cover) for field and indoor meetings and an element of Personal Accident cover. However, members should always ensure that they have Personal Liability cover (normally part of the standard householder's insurance policy - please check your policy) and comprehensive Personal Accident cover. These elements of insurance cover are your responsibility.

Members are reminded that, when in the field, they should wear suitable clothing, take reasonable precautions for their own and others' safety, and follow the leader's instructions. Hard hats should always be taken. When walking through areas such as long grass or bracken, or areas where sheep or deer graze, skin should be covered and tick repellent used - see the Tick Awareness website

If you intend to come along to an event, or for more information about the event or the Risk Assessment for that event, please get in touch with the named contact for that event.

Visitors are always welcome
