Area and group web pages toolkit

All areas and groups now have their own editable pages on the Ramblers website. These pages provide a single place on the main website for information about all our areas and groups. They also provide a web presence for areas and groups that don’t manage their own sites.

Full instructions on how to edit the pages can be downloaded below.

Only volunteers who are recognised as local web page editors can edit the pages. If your area or group doesn’t already have a recognised editor, please decide who this should be and then do the following:

  • If your editor isn’t already registered, they should register an account on the Ramblers website. Use a personal email address, not one that might also be used by other volunteers or family members.
  • Email telling us the name of the editor, their membership number and postcode, the email address they’ve used to register, and the name of the area or group.

We’ll set up the account as soon as possible and let the editor know when this is done. Once registered, the local web page editor will see the necessary edit functions on their group's webpage(s)

Also on this page you'll find information about how best to set up an external website specifically for your area or group, and the guidelines you'll need to follow.
