Walking on your own is healthy,
Walking together is fun, but
Walking in a group is great.
And so say all of us!
Thurlaston Ramblers undertook its first walk on 24th January 1988 and all are listed on the Group's 'official' Red Book. This suggests in excess of 300 rambles have been completed! Have a look at snippets from the Red Book, and a few photos below.
For those that are not aware, we try to organise an easy walk once per month of about 4 to 5 miles in length, ending at a pub for lunch. Each walk is organised by a member volunteer. However the walks are open to all. If you can’t or don’t wish to walk, you are welcome to have lunch only. Just let the organiser know. We normally meet at the bus shelter on the Main Street at 10.00 am.
The organiser for each particular event is responsible for planning their walk with a suitable hostelry. Walk details are posted on the ThurlastonNet along with the organiser's contact details, usually telephone number or email address, at least two weeks prior to the date of the walk. Villagers need to respond to the organiser if they wish to join the trip. The organiser will the liaise with the hostelry to book lunch and ask for car volunteers to give lifts to the walk starting point and back.
The Ramblers coordinator during 2020 is Mary Cook
