About Us - Interested in joining? - please read on...
Rambles are normally held at three weekly intervals on Sundays throughout the year - each of these Sunday excursions involves a coach journey into the countryside where a choice of rambles is made available:
The three walks that are offered are chosen to match most abilities: 'C' Party covers a distance of about 6 miles, 'B' Party tend to do 9 or 10 miles and 'A' Party an average of 12 miles. (However the distances can vary slightly according to the time of year - the type of terrain likely to be encountered etc.) It is not necessary to make a choice of the walk you wish to do until the day in question, when details of each walk are circulated around the coach as we drive out. For an example please visit the 'A Typical Walk' page.
Each walking party has a leader, who will normally have checked the route in advance. Suitable clothing, strong footwear, waterproofs are essential a small first aid kit is recommended and you will also require a packed lunch. Time is also often allowed at the end of a walk for refreshment if a cafe or pub is available.
In addition to the Sunday rambles, the club organises occasional extended stay visits to enable members to enjoy rambles beyond the local countryside. These extended stay visits occur 2 or 3 times per year, dependent upon demand; they are open to all members and are presented at basic cost price.
The club also recognises the need to provide a social element for the benefit of members. Evenings of talks, quizzes, short local walks and reviews of past rambles have proved very popular and much appreciated by all those that attend.
