Volunteering opportuities

Each coach offers several walks each week, so there are plenty of opportunities for those who would like to be involved in leading walks to learn from experienced leaders. There’s also on-line training available from Ramblers.  

The group also undertakes waymarking & footpath work for Northumberland County Council every second Tuesday of the month. Email David Dallow or call 0191 285 6740 if you would like to help with this work.
