Autumn 2016 in the Cam Valley
We are the Ramblers Group for the Somer Valley and encourage everyone, everywhere to enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk.
Based in the Somer Valley area we have excellent access to Chew Valley, The Mendips, The Cotswolds, Salisbury Plain and The Deverells. We sometimes travel further afield to Exmoor, The Quantocks and Dorset. We walk on Sundays and Wednesdays. By joining Ramblers you can access walks across the country for free, receive a quarterly magazine with info on walks, kit and new intitiatives and join in with footpath maintenance work. We look forward to seeing you!
DECEMBER 2016 NEWS
NEW: MEMBERS DEVELOPMENT DAY
As part of the national road tour of Members Development Days, Ramblers are holding a one day event at The Pavilion, Somerdale, Keynsham on Sunday 26th February 2017. The event is an excellent opportunity to learn something new. Some of the sessions will help volunteers who already hold a group officers role, but all will help members learn more about walking and planning to go for a walk. During the afternoon there will be an opportunity to test your newly learnt skills by going for a short walk in the locality. The event is FREE to members.
