Sad News

Dear Ramblers,
It is with great sadness that I write to tell you that Brian Slater, one of our members passed away in hospital last Monday, 30th March after being ill for a few weeks.
Brian was a founder member of the club and has acted as Chairman twice and was also Secretary for a number of years.  He was a very enthusiastic and active member of the Ramblers and will be greatly missed by us all.
Our thoughts are with Sally and her family and we send them our heartfelt sympathy and condolences.  It is particularly sad that this has happened at such a difficult time.  A card has been sent to Sally from the Ramblers but if you wish to do so yourselves and need her address then please email me at
With best wishes
Chris Williams

Coronavirus – Suspension of All Walks

Dear Ramblers,
Following yesterday’s government announcement about the Coronavirus the committee have decided to suspend all walks for the foreseeable future.
This is a disappointment but we would rather be safe than sorry.  There is of course nothing to stop you from doing a walk yourselves.
Stay well and I hope to see you all on a walk once the crisis has passed.
Best Wishes

Note: For future reference this document has also been posted on the Rambler’s website on the “Reference Docs” Page

Link to document:- Ramblers-Walk-Template -Mar 2020

Note: Walk leaders should email the completed document to Pauline Shead ( & Carolyn Currie ( at least a week before the walk so that it can be posted on the website and sent out to members.
