Bringing people together



Until further notice all walks will be subject to COVID-19 guidelines, as given below.


What: Circa 5 mile walks within approximately a 15 mile radius of Ash

When: Fortnightly on a Wednesday starting at 10:00 (unless otherwise advertised).

Leaders: Andy Fuller / 01252 315762 /07775 981059, Nigel Bagley / 01252 327572 / 07932 212691

Overview: We are a group of around 40 members who enjoy each other’s company and the delights of the ever-changing local countryside. Walks take about 2½ hours.

At the end of each walk, many of us enjoy a drink and/or lunch in a nearby pub. 

Walks programme: A programme of upcoming walks, with start point venues and directions, is sent out to all group members every four months. The same information also appears on this page. Members are required to get themselves to the start point. Car sharing is encouraged.

Equipment etc: Walking boots/shoes are strongly recommended along with suitable waterproofs. A good supply of water, particularly on hot and humid days, should be brought. A break is taken at around half distance for light refreshments (bring your own).

It is regretted, but sorry, No Dogs on walks as there may be stiles and we occasionally cross fields containing animals.

Additional events: We also organise occasional special events through the year. These include London walks, a coach trip and weekends away.

Give us a try: New members are always very welcome to try us out and see if the Rambling Group is for them.

COVID-19 Compliance

To satisfy Government requirements the following measures and protocols apply:-

  1. Walks may be subject to revision or cancellation depending on changes in Government guidelines or directives.
  2. Each walk will be risk assessed by the walk leader beforehand based on a recce (a risk assessment proforma is available for walk leaders). The RA is to be provided to one of the group leaders prior to the walk and retained for one year. 
  3. A register is to be taken of those attending a walk.
  4. Anyone suffering from corona virus symptoms or who shares a household with someone suffering from them should self isolate and NOT attend the walk.
  5. In the event of a walker developing symptoms in the 48 hours after a walk they should apply for a Covid 19 test. If requested they should give Test and Trace the contact details of one of the group leaders who will, if required, submit the contact details of every participant on the walk.
  6. Anyone aged 70 and over, or having underlying health conditions or sharing a household with someone in this category should remember they are considered to be clinically vulnerable and should be extra cautious when deciding if they should attend a walk.
  7. Participants will need to complete their own personal risk assessment for attendance on a walk, taking into account the walk risk assessment and their own situation. This will be kept by the individual concerned, and not shared with Group Leaders. A blank proforma for a personal risk assessment is available Personal Risk Assessment Checklist.
  8. Social distancing from other households should be observed at all times.
  9. Sharing of refreshments or equipment outside of members from the same household is to be avoided.
  10. All participants should bring their own hand sanitizer and, in case of need, a face mask.
