Everyone who is registered on the website will recently have been asked to reset their password. We have been advised that due to a hack of our old website approximately 4 years ago, people's passwords may have been stolen at that time. We have recently had reports of them being used in phishing emails.

As a precaution, we ask everyone to reset their password to something new. We also recommend that if you use this password elsewhere you change it there as well. We would like to assure everyone that the new (current) website is secure, and there is no evidence of hacking. Note that we have never stored any personal financial information such as bank card details on the website, as all payments are processed by a secure third party, and always have been.

We have received a number of clarification questions and requests as a result of this incident. We will respond to all enquiries individually. In addition, we are now in the process of reviewing and updating our Privacy Statement, in order to clarify what data we need to retain for legal and accounting purposes. All members will be notified of the changes by email when they have been agreed.

Watch out for more info on next year's walk which will be held on the 11 th May 2019.
