Cheltenham Racecourse - 31 December 2021
Thank you to Mary for leading a nice post-Christmas ramble from Cheltenham centre and around the racecourse. It was great to see such a large group - thirty in all - old and new faces. Thanks also to Mary and Dave for laying on the refreshments at Cheltenham GW Steam Railway Station. Happy New Year to all our ramblers!

Really enjoyed the latest MeetUp walk. Train to Stroud and David and Liz led a great walk around the edge of Stroud, surprisngly not too many ups and downs considering the area - which I was glad of, as I had not walked with the club for 18 months and needing to get fit again. Almost back to normal - Chris.

The 'Walking groups for six' initiative has enabled the club to have limited group walks within government COVID regulations, such as this one at Bredon Hill (thanks to leader, Sue). This walk was just before the county moved to Tier 4 and the scheme has had to be suspended for the time being.
One of our members, Guy, has a blog covering some of his own favourite walks and walking experiences. He features an overview of walks such as The Ross Round, The Palladian Way and The Cape to Cape walk: Guy's rambling guide to walks in England, Scotland and Wales
Bad weather: Some walks may have to be cancelled because of difficult weather conditions. Our Walks Programme Secretary, Paul, is currently keeping members informed of any
alterations to the programme.
It is always a good idea to check your e-mail before going on a walk in case of a cancellation or a last minute change in the walk detail.

Health and safety: Please be aware, that with rambling, as with many outdoor activities - there is a small health and safety risk. Please read the health and safety guidance, particularly if walking with the club for the first time.
Cheltenham Rambling Club has recently joined The Walking Partnership. This new 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. 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. (important: please quote the club name at the time of booking - this cannot be done after the holiday). This extra funding could really make a difference to us!
The Cheltenham Rambling Club was founded in 1942 and is affiliated to the Ramblers Association. It is a friendly club and always welcomes new members.
