To promote Worcester Ramblers I have, with the agreement of the committee applied to display a Worcester Ramblers tree at the Worcester Cathedral Christmas Tree Festival.
The tree will be decorated with hand made "Rambler" themed items. It will be essential that these compliment each other in scale, colour and subject and a variety of methods and materials will add interest to the display.
If you wish to be involved in making decorations please contact me by 1st. Sept. so that we can discuss and plan the project.

Except for Newquay all holidays arranged by Alan Terry have been removed from the web site as the holiday account set up by Alan does not meet the ramblers’ requirements regarding transparency, audit and impartiality. Anyone booking any of these holidays should contact Alan Terry directly. All future Worcester Ramblers holidays will be agreed by the committee.
A number of us have decided to undertake a seventh long distance linear walk, this year along the South Downs Way. A summary of the walk and its draft schedule can be viewed by clicking on the Links box.
We are in the late stages of planning this adventure and would like to give you visibility so that you can reserve the dates on your calendar.
11 members have already signed up for all or part of the trail so far. It is essential that anyone wishing to participate contacts Cliff D. in advance to register.
If you are interested in joining us for all or part of the Way and would like further, more detailed information, please contact Cliff D. by clicking on the ‘Contact’ box (or talk to me when you next see me). You will then be added to the walk information circulation list.
It is essential that we know well in advance if somebody is planning to join us in order to plan car sharing or in case there are any subsequent adjustments.
There is plenty of information on the South Downs Way via Google.
Like any other volunteer role the scope is as broad and wide as you choose to make it. The core tasks are:
Feel you would like to give it a go or would like to know more then please feel free to contact or speak to any of the committee members.
Would you like to volunteer for a work party but concerned you might not be up for the job? If you can use any of the following you are qualified; secateurs, shears, slashers, loppers, hammer, drill, spade, saw or screwdriver.
Training can be given via the Council for other tools such as Strimmers and Brushcutters.
We do a fair amount of clearance work, however; we also fit a lot of different styles of gates; pedestrian, kissing, bridleway and radar plus installation of ditch crossings, bridges and finally steps as seen extensively at Southstone Rock and Yeldon.
The work parties normally meet on the first Monday of the month. We start at 10.00 hrs and go on till around 14.00 - 15.00 hrs. The size of the work party can vary but normally around six volunteers is ideal. You don’t have to stay the whole day if you don’t want to. So if you would like to do your bit for the countryside and Ramblers in general please contact me.
Volunteer required to distribute Worcester Ramblers leaflets in the Worcester Area. A list of locations is available, and this occasional task may be completed in a time that suits you.
If you would like to help then please contact a member of the committee.
