Group name: Wolverhampton
This group is a part of Staffordshire Area.
Our activities include:
Short and easy walks, Path maintenance
Our group helps walkers of all ages to enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk.
We organise led walks ranging from 4.5 miles to 20+ miles in length – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. We walk many Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year, some Wednesday evenings from May to August and also during the week - see list of forthcoming walks on this page in 'Our group walks' box.
An update on COVID-19 (as on 10th Sept 2020)
Ramblers groups can continue to organise led walks for up to 30 people, as long as they follow the conditions in this document >>> guidance to restart group walks in a COVID-secure way. (Essential reading).
Amongst other conditions, Social distancing of 2 metre minimum must be retained throughout, leader must have names and contact details of all walkers and leader may set a limit lower than 30 for the walk. If there is a limit of lower than 30, a booking system must be in place, so that members can telephone leader in advance to book places on walk.
Remember, there is no pressure to lead or join group walks until you feel ready to do so.
Why does the “rule of six” not apply to the Ramblers group walks?
Ramblers and Walking for Health organised group walks are categorised as ‘outdoor physical activity events’. These are exempt from the latest restrictions, as we have already met the protocols, and put extra measures in place to reduce the risks of COVID-19.
The Wolverhampton group is organising programme of such walks. Check our webpages for walk details now.
Our walks programme for small groups with plenty of other information, will be found in the blue-background block on this page, to the right on laptops/desktops and below on mobiles >>>>
