What’s On – coverage

The What’s On grouping of pages contains the Club’s:

  • Current Activities – the walks and other activities that are coming up or in progress
  • Archived activities – the walks and other activities that finished yesterday or earlier
  • Current Special Events – incentive programs, conservation work parties and any other special events that are coming up or in progress
  • Archived Special Events – incentive programs, conservation work parties and any other special events that finished yesterday or earlier.

‘Current activities’ is always up to date. As soon as a new activity is approved by the Walks Data, it displays in Current Activities. Once an activity’s End Date has passed, it displays in Archived Activities.

FAQ

Q. I want to make a booking but there is no ‘Request a Booking’ button

A. The activity might be a ‘No-need-to-book’ activity. Go to the activity detail view and look for the ‘need to book’ field about half way down the page. If it is set to No, you cannot book.

Or the activity may have already started.

Or you may be logged in but your membership has expired. Check your dashboard. If ‘My Bookings’ is not visible, your membership has expired. If you were a member, you will need to renew your membership before you can make booking requests again.

Q. When the System sends me emails about my bookings, it sends them twice

A. We’re sorry – we had to put the multiple-emails bug into the too-hard basket. We are not sure if the cause is in the software or is due to some kind of slowness on the server that hosts our site.
