Ramblers News – Updated
22 October 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.
Sunday 6 November
Walk: Blockley -
Snowshill - Blockley
Distance: 9.5 or 5 miles, moderate

Longborough (with the Cotswold Wardens). Southwards
to include a circuit of villages and Stow-on-the-Wold.
9 miles, moderate.
Pub lunch available.
Meet at 10.00 at the Cotswold Food Store on the A424 Stow-Broadway road
(OS Explorer 45/170296).
AGM on Nov 28th 8.00 Little Village Hall
with nominations for Chair please.
Keith has asked me to give you advance
warning of a change in the Sunday walk in November:
- First, he will be bringing the walk
forward to SUNDAY 6 NOVEMBER - to avoid the clash with armistice
Sunday on 13 November.
- Second, the walk will be from Blockley
to Snowshill and return, with the option to do the return only - he
has decided that the walk he had originally proposed (Napton-on-the-Hill
in Warwickshire) would be too far to travel.
Please note that the date of the AGM is
Monday 28th Nov at 8.00 in the Little Village Hall. Keith will be
standing down as Chair and so it would be really good if someone could
put themselves forward as the next chair. Keith will propose that there
should not be any need to arrange mid week walks as they were so badly
attended. The Cotswold wardens and the North Cotswold ramblers both have
mid week walks which are well advertised. So the job of Chair person is
considerably less than Keith has done.
participating in walks does so at her/his own risk and should not leave
the group without informing the leaders. Please ensure that your
clothing/footwear is appropriate to the conditions. If you walk with a
dog, please keep it on the lead when on roads or where
live stock is present. Also, wherever possible, please share cars to
avoid congestion at meeting place.
Suggestions for future walks will be gratefully
received. Please email details to
