Bringing people together

Rambling

 

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

 

What we do: 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 whilst exploring the varied landscapes of the local countryside. Walks take about 2½ hours.

At the end of a walk some like to finish off with a drink or lunch in a nearby pub. 

Walks programme: Details of upcoming walks, with start points and directions are added to this page as they become available, see below. 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.
