GOOD NEWS!

Monthly Sunday Coach Rambles resumed in April 2022 and are included in the published programme.

Unfortunately the Coach Committee have reluctantly decided that, in order to minimise losses, the coach trips will be occasional trips to somewhere of interest. The trips originally scheduled for August and September have been cancelled.

The next trip will be on October 16th to Bakewell, Derbyshire

Booking essential

Further details are shown on the sub-page Monthly Sunday Coach Rambles

Changes to Programme

Introducing a series of 'car free' walks using public transport

Walks during July & August using trains and buses to and from Leicester city centre varying in length from 9 - 14.5 miles. These are all incorporated into the main programme - search for Friday walks or see page 8 of the printable programme below. These walks are gaining popularity and are likely to continue beyond August.

***

Sat 20th August - the leader is now Glenn McPhail

***

Thursday 25th August 6 mile morning walk - the leader is now Kosh Pattani

***

Our walks programme has been successfully operating within Covid-19 guidelines and restrictions since April 2021.

  • No limit to group sizes

  • No pre-booking unless required for booking a meal after a Tuesday or Thursday morning walk as required by the pub

  • Occasionally the starting point or other walk details have to be changed and each group endeavours to notify regular walkers by email and changes will also be shown on this page. It is always worth checking this page before deciding to join a walk and also contacting the leader. This is especially important for the Tuesday and Thursday morning walks where there is an option to stay for a meal afterwards.

The calendar of walks can be viewed by following this link

You can also download and print the current the programme for July onwards

For further information please read the Ramblers Covid secure guidance


If you have tried to log on to Assemble and are having trouble the most likely cause is you’ve not been recorded on Assemble yet. 

To be recorded on Assemble, volunteers just need to email volunteersupport@ramblers.zendesk.com with their role, Group/Area, and their membership number (if a member). We also ask that they copy in their chair or secretary to the email. 

Alternatively, chairs and secretaries can also let us know about volunteers in their Group/Area on their behalf.


If you have a smartphone or tablet you can also view the walks programme by downloading the Ramblers App. 

Visit the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android phones)

Search for the app using the term ‘Ramblers’ then download the app. Go to “Sign In” and then “Log In” and put in your email and password. These should be exactly the same details as are on ‘My account’.


 

Leicester and District Ramblers is an active group with a programme offering a variety of walks to suit all levels of walkers, including short evening walks in the summer, half-day and all day walks all year round and all day walks further afield on our monthly coach rambles. For further information please see the Walk Descriptions link on the right.

If you’re new to walking or new to the area or just visiting, walking with us is a great way to explore the county including the historic geology and woodland of Charnwood Forest, the reclamation of the former mining area which is now part of the National Forest, the rolling hills of fox-hunting country and the historical battlefield sites associated with the Battle of Bosworth as well as many pretty villages, canals, rivers, disused railway lines and of course footpaths and bridleways.

So if you’ve ever wondered where that footpath sign leads to why not join us for a walk?

You don’t have to be a member initially but we would encourage you to join once you have enjoyed 3 walks with us.


We also have a Facebook page which you can view here
