Climbing local hills

I believe it should be possible to climb hills within one's local region with a member of one's household. I understand that mountain rescue organizations need to be protected, so this should be within one's capabilities, adequate preparation made and due care exercised at all times

Why the contribution is important

For many people, access to the hills presents the opportunity for physical exercise. However, it is also far more than this, giving the opportunity to connect with nature, and be an important, life enhancing, experience that takes them beyond their daily concerns.

    As someone who lives alone & feeling increasingly isolated from contact in real life (not just on social media), I would welcome the opportunity to walk with a limited number of other people, one would be great! I can currently chat to a stranger who I encounter out on my walk at 2m distance but cannot walk & chat with a friend at 2m distance who lives around the corner? It doesn't make sense.

    Sensible idea, with the provisos listed by Conival. Would also agree that it would provide some support for those living alone and needing some safe social interaction.
