Additional Information about the Guild and the course

The Guild was formed in 1981.
It has been welcoming visitors to Hereford for 40 years.

During the autumn and winter months,
members meet for lectures and conviviality.
We have an annual visit to another town
to learn from their guided walks,
as well as social activities for members and friends.

We are a voluntary organisation.
Our income is used to promote the Guild
and to fund our insurance.
Our officers are elected on a rotational system.

At the end of the course, intending guides
complete an assessment on essential facts,
before accompanying six different guides on walks,
to familiarise themselves with different routes and styles.

If you complete the course satisfactorily,
you will be invited to join the Guild
and you will receive your badge
from the Mayor at our Christmas gathering
in the Mayor’s Parlour at the Town Hall.
