​ Mavis's Award

One of our hard working and loyal members has had her efforts rewarded. At a recent event Mavis Harris was presented with a national Ramblers Award for all her many years of volunteering with Hexham Ramblers. Mavis has been principally involved with promoting, preserving and protecting rights of way in Northumberland and has developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of the county's footpaths.

The evening included a talk by Chris Francis who last year completed a long-held ambition to walk from Lands End to John O'Groats. Chris's talk was illustrated with slides and musical interventions by The Four Fivers.

Chris has published a book about his epic adventure called Stroll On which is being sold at Hexham's Tynedale Hospice at Home shop for £8.50 with proceeds going towards the charity. An excellent little publication.

                                                Contact us for any more details.

      Enjoy 3 free walks to be sure we are the group for you and then sign up to be a member of Ramblers Hexham Group and enjoy all the many benefits.

      We walk every Sunday, starting at 10.15 am, meeting at the start of the walk.

       Our walks are not just in and around the North and South Tyne and main Tyne Valleys, we also walk on the Northumberland coast, in the Cheviots, and in south Northumberland and north Durham.

        The walks range from 4.5  - 12 miles. The pace is not fast and there are always stops for drink and lunch breaks. Whenever one is nearby, we finish off the day with a tea shop visit.

         Please note that we only allow registered assistance dogs on walks. Also, young people under 18 years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

         We also have a path maintenance group which meets monthly between April and October. We clear vegetation from overgrown paths and replace missing and wornout footpath signs. If you would like to help keep our paths open and accessible, do join us!
