We are a Ramblers group run by volunteers as part of the national walking charity. We don't charge as we hope that you too will join the Ramblers after trying 2 or 3 of our walks to see if you like us. Are you happy to join our Meetup on that basis?

This Meetup Group is aimed at people who like the idea of getting out of town for a day in the country at the end of a long working week.
It is open to all but is particularly aimed at those of us in the 40-plus age group, those who may not feel confident walking by themselves and those who would like some company on the walk or in the pub afterwards to make the day even better.
It is run by a couple of members of the existing Ramblers Group of the same name and publicises walks and socials which are suitable for new people to come along and try.
Unlike most Meetup groups you won't have to make any payment to come on a few walks with us. This is because the Ramblers are paying the Meetup fees in order to publicise the great work done by our volunteers and because we want new people to see what fun we have on our days and nights out. We hope that if you try a few events then you too will want to join!
The main group was set up in January 2013 and since going on to Meetup in February 2014 we've had lots of lovely new people find us and then join up properly so they can take a full part in all our activities. Aside from not paying any kind of fee to walk, full members don't have any limit to how many walks they can do, they can go out walking with any Ramblers Group anywhere in the country, they don't have to RSVP and they can come to all our social events and our weekends away.
Joining the Ramblers is a great thing to do if you enjoy walking and want to help keep our paths and hills open to all. It costs around £30 or less depending on your circumstances (you can even join via a monthly Direct Debit of £3) and brings many other benefits and discounts in addition to becoming part of our growing, friendly group! It’s easy to sign up online: http://mwwalkers.org....
If you have any questions do send us a message, or come to the New Members Night on the second Wednesday of each month.
