Welcome to Kingswood Ramblers
We are part of the Ramblers, the charity that helps everyone, everywhere, enjoy walking and protects the places we all love to walk. Kingswood Group is one of the groups in the Avon Area of the Ramblers.
We are an active and friendly group with an all year round programme of walks both in our local area and further afield. Sunday walks range between 6 and 10 miles. We have shorter Wednesday evening walks from April to September. See our Walks page for full details, where you will also find advice on what to wear and carry on a walk.
If you think you'd enjoy walking with us please feel free to come out with us a couple of times to try us out before deciding to join the Ramblers Association.
Latest News September 2018
Leaders' Training Courses
Ramblers Head Office is hoping to arrange training courses locally for existing and potential leaders. They will be designed to improve walk planning, map reading and generally boost a new leader's confidence.
When more details are received they will be posted on the website and Facebook page.
You will be advised by email if we have your email address.
We have recently donated funds allocated from Ramblers Head Office to Siston Parish Council to install a bench on the Community Forest Path.
The bench has now been installed - see the photos on the News page of the website and on our Facebook page.
This members' event was well supported despite the weather. See a full report in Avon Area News.
The monthly clearance of local footpaths is continuing with about a dozen volunteers available for this work.
Recently we have increased our involvement with South Gloucestershire Council and now regularly assist their Footpath Officer in replacing broken stiles with kissing gates.
We have a team of 5 who help with this work. We supply the tools and gloves so if you would like to know more please contact John Davis on 07745 118226.
We look forward to you joining the team.
In Case of Emergency ICE cards
These are waterproof cards that can be filled in with personal emergency contact details and medical information. Walk leaders will have these and we encourage you to complete one and keep it in an accessible place - such as the top pocket of your rucksack - so that the walk leader or emergency services can then use the ICE card to quickly access the information. Whenever you are out it is useful to have this information handy.
