Weekly Sunday rambles

Unless otherwise stated all walks are about 7 miles long

Consideration for other walkers

When walking with a group, do not walk ahead of the leader.   He or she

cannot control the pace if irresponsible walkers are forging ahead.   As 

groups are usually made up of varying walking abilities please consider those 

at the back of the party.   Leaders especially, are reminded that they must

set and control the pace of the walk to reflect these differing abilities, and must

not allow the pace to be dictated by a few members of the party who may tend to

force the pace.   Failure to observe these considerations may deter members from fully

enjoying the walks.

For all walks please bring refreshments.   There are normally pubs on route but we cannot guarantee the

availability of food.   If you wish to join at the start of the ramble you should ring the walk leader in the

week prior to the ramble.  When walking with a group, do not walk ahead of the leader.   

The background music is "walking back to happiness" by Helen Shapiro

Redditch ramblers exercise a registered assistance dogs only rule

 All walks are at your own risk.
