Blockley Ramblers

Blockley Ramblers News – Updated 4 September 2011

Blockley Ramblers now walk mid-week as well as on Sundays. Depending on Bank Holidays, mid-week walks are being arranged for the first Tuesday of each month, the walks being similar in length to the Sunday’s i.e. around 4-5 miles.

Keith has stopped arranging all day walks on Thursdays as take up was not good although we all enjoyed the morning walk and stopping for lunch in a pub. That will continue I hope.
