Ramblers News – Updated
29 March 2010
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.

The Cotswolds Wardens undertake a variety of activities to help sustain
and improve the amenities of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)
that is the Cotswolds. One of these, the job of so-called Parish
Wardens, is walking local footpaths and liaising with the relevant
Gloucestershire County Council officers in the event of problems such as
broken stiles or fallen trees. Blockley, which is one of the largest
parishes in the north Cotswolds, has a number of such Wardens, each of
whom has responsibility for a different group of footpaths: Paul Adams,
Chris Blewitt, Dick Robinson and Keith Sisson. If you
come across a problem on a footpath in the parish during your walking,
firstname.lastname@example.org know in the first instance.
