Thank you!

Current volunteering opportunities. You do not have to be a Ramblers member to assist with practical activities that will benefit all our fellow walkers.

Devon Area needs volunteers urgently to ensure that we continue to run efficiently. We are looking for volunteers who can offer skills and energy to carry out these rewarding roles. The roles include attendance at Area Council meetings 4 times each year. Lots of help is available for induction into the role and Ramblers offer good training

Area Secretary/Assistant Area Secretary Our current Area Secretary proposes stepping down at the 2020 AGM, so we are seeking a successor. Alternatively, the existing postholder will continue for a further year if an Assistant Area Secretary comes forward to understudy him for a year with a view to stepping up to the full role in 2021. A job description and supplementary information is provided below:

Area Secretary Supplementary Information


Area Treasurer  we are pleased to announce that Lesley Fysh has volunteered for this role.

Assistant Co-ordinator Social Media we are pleased to annouce that Maggi Rogers has volunteered for this role.

Other volunteer roles are as follows:

The Dartmoor Way. With the cycling route around the Moor now open, attention is turning to the footpath route. Volunteers will be needed to assist with waymarking the route which extends to over 100 miles. We will be working in partnership with Dartmoor National Park to ensure that waymarks are attached to every post and structure along the route.  Creating a Way Marked route around Dartmoor will enable more walkers to access some beautiful landscape and the historic towns and villages. The route will be circular, unusual in the UK, and will certainly be an attractive asset for walkers. It has the potential to become a well-used trail.  To register yourself as a Volunteer email Michael Owen our Project Manager or read more on our project pages.

The Two Moors Way The project is seeking to recruit volunteers. They are looking for persons who would like to contribute to the project in terms of some volunteering, in terms of monitoring the route, IT skills and administrative skills. If anyone is interest in offering their skills, it will be much appreciated and John Howell would be happy to discuss the opportunities with them.

Area Council.  We have vacancies for Individual Members on Area Council. You do not have to be involved in any of our other activities, or be on a group committee, all you need is to be a Ramblers member. We have 3 Area Council meetings each year, held on a Saturday morning, and you would be provided with papers for the meeting and be able to speak and vote on our business. It is a great way of finding out more qabout how we are run.

Path Maintenance. We do not have our own work parties, but support Devon County Council, Dartmoor National Park and other organisations with their maintenance work. Opportunities will be advertised on here as we are notified of them.
