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 as well as some shorter morning weekday walks. 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 June 2018
Wednesday Evening Walks Programme
As you may know after this year Keith Jefferies will no longer be Wednesday evening walks organiser. This means that unless somebody comes forward to replace Keith there will no longer be any Wednesday evening walks. If this concerns you and you enjoy the Wednesday walks please offer to take over and keep the walks going.
All you need to do is record details of the walks that people are offering for the next programme. These are passed to John Davis Programme Secretary who then transfers them to the programme for printing.
This is your group - please help to keep it going.
Summer Get-together Sunday 12th August
Please note this is for Kingswood Ramblers Members only
To celebrate a wonderful summer we are having a 6 mile walk followed by a picnic at Swineford. The food will be supplied. BYO drink if you like.
See your paper programme for more details.
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.
