Walking Group (HRRA Organised Event)
Members Bar and Peggy organise the walking group. The group meets on the third Sunday in each month and generally consists of a 3 – 6 mile walk followed by lunch at a pub. If you would like details of the walks or further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first event took place on 16th January 2011 which was a sunny 4 1/2 mile walk around Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. Walks are generally on the third Sunday in the month and previous walks have been in Icklesham, Battle, Hastings Country Park, Wilmington, among other locations on a monthly basis ever since.
Hastings and Rother Rainbow Alliance has joined The Walking Partnership. This partnership, supported by Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, provides direct financial contributions to local walking groups to help with organising group walks, encouraging people to get out walking, helping to clear and improve footpaths, providing equipment to help walkers etc. Over the past 65 years, Ramblers Worldwide Holidays has given many millions of pounds to assist walking charities and conservation projects in Britain and the countries they visit on their worldwide holidays. Now our group can benefit directly.
Ramblers Worldwide Holidays operate group walking holidays in the UK and all around the world. Each holiday is accompanied by a qualified walks leader, so you can leave all the organising to them and just enjoy meeting like minded people and of course, some fantastic walking. Holidays are graded in terms of difficulty, and there is a full range from sightseeing right up to hut-to-hut mountain treks. Take a look at their website on www.ramblersholidays.co.uk or give them a call on 01707 331133 for more details or to order a brochure.
Remember when you book to quote the name of our group, and we will then receive a contribution of £10 per person on UK holidays, £20 per person on short haul holidays, and £30 per person on long haul holidays. This extra funding could really make a difference to us!
