Winter’s here; take care out there

With the sudden onset of severe wintry weather, Kinder MRT would like to offer some timely advice to walkers: be prepared; check the mountain weather forecast on sites such as the Met Office (http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/mountain-forecast), have a map and compass and know how to use them, take a torch and spare batteries, wear suitable clothing, allow yourself enough time to complete your walk in the daylight and always be prepared to turn around if the situation is getting difficult. By all means enjoy the hills, but please don’t take unnecessary chances
