What we do

Additional information on What we do

Group walks

Our groups organise a varied programme of walks  over any given month.  We cover a wide area, and you will find walks (short and long) on weekdays, weekends and occasional summer evenings to suit your diary.  Take a look at the variety of walks available  to you across Worcestershire  Area and see what takes your fancy!

Check out our Groups to find out what they are organising – you may even wish to suggest a walk yourself! All ideas are gratefully received by the various Walk Leaders.

Footpath maintenance and other Rights of Way activities

Within our Groups we have a great bunch of volunteers who get together on a regular basis to carry out vital maintenance work, helping to keep our footpaths open and accessible to all. These are called working parties.  If you would like to volunteer, you will find all the information within the Group links. However, you can also email the working party coordinator at  gmt.b975ah@gmail.com.

Members are also involved in responding to consultations from our Local Authorities on footpath diversions and closures  and other planning matters affecting our footpaths.  Our Area Footpath Cordinator can be contacted at paths.worcsramblers@yahoo.com.

Working closely with Group Path Officers across the area, we try to influence policy to make sure the path network is maintained and hopefully improved. Individual problems, dodgy stiles etc – should be reported directly to the Worcestershire rights of way team - here's a link https://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/council-services/travel-and-highways/report-road-or-path-issue/report-problem-public-right-way

Social events

When we are not walking,  most of our Groups are busy organising  social activities which include (but are not limited to):

  • Walking holidays and weekends away - both here  in the UK and abroad
  • Coach day trips (walking and social)
  • Nights out at the theatre/cinema/live music events
  • Pub lunches and evenings out at  restaurants 
  • Quiz nights
  • Area wide events - opportunities to meet fellow ramblers across Worcestershire

So, if you fancy a short walking break during the year, or a midweek pub lunch,  take a look at what the various Groups are organising and get in touch to register your interest.
