He is able to differentiate between somebody saying they will attend the next amble and booking a walk. When you book a walk, you need to give Tim:- your name, – your contact phone number, – which walk you are booking, – how many people you are booking for, – your email address. Tim will reply to confirm the booking. This may take a couple of weeks if he is away on holiday.
