Walking Partnership

This is a scheme operated by Ramble Worldwide (formerly Ramblers Worldwide Holidays). When members of a Ramblers group book a holiday with them and nominates a group, the company donates to that group’s funds; groups receive the donations twice a year. In the year ended 30th September 2023 Southampton Group has benefitted by £520. In October a further £350 was received covering the April to September 2023 holiday period. Thank you to Ramble Worldwide, and to our members who nominate our group when making their bookings.


We hope to replace a stile in the Durley parish towards the end of April
