Social Events and Activities


​ Easter Hot X Bun Walk from The Tors Inn Belstone Dartmoor  

PAYMENTS FOR SOCIAL EVENTS BY BANK TRANSFER.  Our bank has now imposed a fee for each cheque deposited in our account.  In order to minimise our costs it would be very helpful if members would pay for social events by bank transfer, which is free, quicker and more convenient for the organiser.  Bank details are: account number 20150354,  sort code 60-83-01.  Please idenity your payment with your name and advise the organiser.  If you are unable to pay in this way we will continue to accept cheques.

Jul 2020: A very early birthday notice: East Devon Ramblers started walking as a group in July 1970.  The committee is interested in hearing from members about how we might celebrate our 50th birthday in July 2020.  We would particularly like to hear from longstanding members and ‘retired-members.  Ideas to committee members please.          ​

Feature Walks

Look carefully ​through the programme, there are often a number of walks with the possibility of food and beverages afterwards.  Some Friday half day walks may offer an optional lunch at the end, usually in a public house, and some all day walks may finish at a cafe for tea and cake.  It is always good to support local cafes and hostelries especially those that have kindly let us use their car parks for our walks.  The monthly Thursday evening walks in the summer almost certainly finish with a drink option.
