The group is always looking for new volunteers to lead walks. Assistance and support by experienced walk leaders is always available for any member willing to consider leading a walk.
Any member interested in volunteering should contact Dominique Grattidge, the Walks Coordinator, for further details.
We now have Parish Footpath Observers in place. The role of the Observer is to walk all the footpaths in their allocated area at least once a year and identify and report any problems. The area that each warden covers consists of the administrative area covered by a parish council as identified on an Ordnance Survey map. (The role has no connection with any activity undertaken by local parish councils).
We have volunteer Observers in place covering all bar one of the 28 parishes we are responsible for; we currently have no-one covering the parish of Horton Kirby and South Darenth.
Members interested in becoming a Ramblers Parish Footpath Observer should contact the Parish Footpath Observer Coordinator Terry Coen for further information.
Examples of problems identified and reported to KCC:-
