There is an interesting article in the Guardian newspaper this week which looks at rights of way and the work we are doing to protect them. We need to ensure that rights of way are listed on the definitive map by 2026, otherwise we risk losing them permanently.
We run free training courses on how you can help with 2026, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in finding out more. There’s also more information available at the national Ramblers site.
We’re pleased to announce that our annual series of winter walks is this year themed on loneliness and feeling excluded from society. So, we’re running led walks and we’re doing all that we can to try and make them appealing and welcoming to those who’d love to join a group, but might find it hard to do so. And we’re also of course always ready to welcome new members who want to get healthy in the new year, and what better way than by walking?
The festival runs from Friday 21 December 2018 until Sunday 6 January 2019. We have details of some of our walks at our festival page, with the facility to see more about each of the walks on Meetup. Please do message us if you have any questions, queries or are tempted to come and walk with us. We hope to get some media coverage of our festival and we appreciate all the publicity we can get to try and reach out to potential new walkers.
