Winter Walking Festival - 21 December 2018 (5 miles) - Overstrand
This walk is part of our winter walking festival which runs from Friday 21 December 2018 to Sunday 6 January 2019. This year the Ramblers are working with the theme of inclusion and loneliness, and we want to reach out to as many people as we can, to encourage them to come on these walks. So, these walks are designed to be welcoming to new people who have never walked with us (and of course those who have!). We think that joining a new group and meeting new people can be really difficult, and especially so for those who might be shy or feeling like they're left out. Our aim is to offer a community where people can come and walk with us, come to our social events and on our holidays, and we think that we are genuinely welcoming. And walking is good for the soul, the body and the mind, all that exercise outdoors! If you need any help, then message me. That might mean you would like someone to meet you at your car, maybe give you a lift to a walk, meet you in advance of a walk or at a social event, whatever helps you make the first step to walking with us. Or you might just want to start walking with a new group to start a new healthy habit in 2019! In which case, the Ramblers offer hundreds of led walks every month and members get sent a programme of them all. We only list a few walks on Meetup, there are many more available in the area programme and members can walk with any group. You will need to join the Ramblers if you've walked with us three times, we'll provide information on that. For our shorter walks, don't worry too much about equipment. Some of our members won't step outside of their house if they're not kitted out in Rab gear, but all you need are shoes that won't fall apart and a coat so you don't get too cold (and other clothing obviously). WALK - 21 December (5 miles) This walk is led by Heather, one of our classiest and professional of walk leaders. If you have any yoga questions, then Heather is your woman to answer them, and if you want to stand on your head to relax then she can help with that too. Heather likes vegetables, particularly cabbage, and is looking forwards to a relaxed and wine-filled Christmas. Meet at Overstrand car park at 10am, there's the chance of going up Cromer church tower for anyone who wants, and also there may be a couple of coffee breaks.

Norfolk Area Ramblers offer walks around Norfolk and East Anglia led by volunteers from our various groups.

We are part of the national Ramblers charity and we welcome new members and walk leaders.

This meetup group will list just a small selection of the various walks and social events which are operated by the groups which form part of Norfolk Area Ramblers. Please note that although our Meetup group is free to join and it's free to come along to try us out - we do ask that you join the Ramblers if you attend more than three events.

Please note that Hike Norfolk now have their own home on Meetup at https://www.meetup.com/hikenorfolk/

Further information about the Ramblers in Norfolk can be found at http://www.norfolkra.org.uk/

There is a complete list of walks at http://www.norfolkra.org.uk (http://www.norfolkra.org.uk/walks.htm)/.

The groups are:

• Breckland

• Fakenham

• Great Yarmouth and District

• Hike Norfolk

• King's Lynn and District

• Legstretchers

• Mid-Norfolk

• Norwich

• Sheringham

• Short and Leisurely

Any member of Ramblers is able to attend any walk or event and details of joining are available at http://www.ramblers.org.uk/ . Potential members who wish to attend a walk before joining are more than welcome.

With walks, you don't need to RSVP and you can just turn up. However, it's helpful for walk leaders to know who is coming and the numbers, so RSVP if you can. For social events, or where a space has been booked for you (such as on a train or bus) please do all you can to turn up, as you may be holding a space that someone else can use. However, if you can't make it (and we know that happens), then please change your RSVP to 'no' as soon as you can.
