Area name: Oxfordshire

We’re all about walking and talking. Whether you’re looking for people to walk and socialise with, or want to help improve the paths we all walk on, or both, there’s something for you with Oxfordshire Ramblers. Why not start by coming along on one of our walks and seeing if the Ramblers is for you? The first three are free, giving you the chance to see for yourself what Ramblers can offer before you to sign up.

Our walks include short and long ones, on weekdays and weekends, and occasional trips away, with people like you. These activities are organised by our 10 Groups. Eight of these are geographically based around the county, so there will be walks near you. That said, you are welcome to walk with any and all of our groups. The other two groups are our Oxon 20s & 30s and Oxon Weekend Walkers for people who are usually occupied during the week. Five of our groups have path maintenance teams, we coordinate parish paths wardens throughout the county, and have a course for new walk leaders in autumn.

Want to see what walking with Ramblers is like? Have a look at the video made by our Oxon Weekend Walkers group. You can see it on their website www.oxonww.org or on YouTube http://bit.ly/2laWkdd
