COVID-19 - see update below:  
Meon Group walks:  we have returned to a 'turn up on the day' system for most walks.  Booking may be required for a very few walks only - this is clearly indicated.

04/12/21:  Covid19:  as you are all aware the numbers of Covid19 are increasing daily, with numbers in this region and that some restrictions have been reintroduced by the Government, such as the wearing of facemasks.  Although they do not affect the Group directly whilst we are out walking, it would be advisable to consider taking a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) prior to joining a Group walk.  We have had two cases of Covid infection following walks over the past three weeks, those infected tested positive in the days following a walk and of course the source of infection was not known.  Just to reassure you all participants on the walk were notified and all were negative following a LFT.  It is therefore requested that all who are going on an organised Group walk take a LFT prior to the walk. It is requested request that should anyone test positive within 10 days of the walk to report either to the leader or to the email ink on this page.  Thank you

We look forward to welcoming you on one of our walks
Thanks to all of the leaders who continue to offer walks.
Meon Ramblers look foward to welcoming you on one of our walks.
Getting out and having a walk is good for our health and well being; you are welcome to go out walking on your own or with a friend, following Government guidelines.  However remember social distancing on walks:  please respect the need to keep space (ideally 2 m) between individuals.  Avoid hand contact and use sanitising wipes or gel if possible.  Please bring your own refreshments and carry your contact details, just in case of a problem.

 We organise regular walks led by local expert leaders – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.

The Meon Group offers 3 walks of varying lengths almost every Sunday throughout the year with some mid-week walks. Our walks are mainly in Hampshire and West Sussex with occasional trips across to the Isle of Wight and into Dorset.  Extras include coach based walks and some social events (cream tea walks, BBQ, quiz and skittles evenings).     Our walk along The Thames Path continued in 2019 reaching Hammersmith in October.  These coach walks are very popular so advance booking for coach seats essential. See Thames Path page or our walks programme for dates. We completed our walk along the Thames Path on 2nd October 2021. 

We publish all our walks here on the Ramblers Find a walk site - the details of all our walks are shown in the adjacent column.  Click on a walk to find out more.   If you have any queries about a particular walk please contact the named leader; they will be able to assist you  in locating the start point. 

Weather conditions:  very occasionally we have to make changes to our walks due to the weather and difficult ground conditions or if a leader is unwell.  We post these changes against each walk - including if we have to cancel the walk (weather such as excessively hot conditons, flooding or snow and ice or if a leader is ill).   If you are uncertain if a walk will be taking place  - please contact the leader to check.  The leader contact details are posted with each walk.
