South Downs Way

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.

Trail Walk 2019

And the winner is………..

A vote was taken amongst members at the AGM last November to determine which of three trails should be undertaken in 2019. Twenty Nine people voted the Gloucestershire Way as their first or second choices and was preferred by a majority to the Heart of England Way and the Three Choirs Way. So the 100 mile Gloucestershire Way will be our trail walk for 2019

 

The walk will be in 8 sections of between 11 and 14 miles. The walk starts from Chepstow Castle in Wales and finishes at Tewkesbury. We visit the Forest of Dean, May Hill, Gloucester, the Severn Plain and the Cotswold villages of Stow on the Wold and Winchcombe.

 

Planning for this walk and further details will be given later in the year.

Walk Register

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU legal framework which will come into operation on 25 May 2018 and introduces additional regulations for all organisations that process (collect, manage and use) personal data. As our volunteers process data on behalf of the Ramblers, volunteers are legally required to comply with the GDPR.

This means we are required to change how we handle the walks register. A new simplified register is now available on the website and should be used from now on. The process after the walk is also new. After the walk the leader emails the number of walkers and the back marker name to the membership secretary and then destroys the register.
