As an organisation involved with the promotion of walking (The Ramblers Association and Wessex Wanderer Railway Walks) we work in cooperation with other organisations who hold Walking Festivals. Our walks will be both on the Wessex Wanderer Railway Walks and the approriate festival programme.
Our walks will continue to be free other than the cost of transport and food, drink and any other incidentals. Our walks will be open to all and membership of the Ramblers is not required for the first couple of walks.
It is hoped that we will increase the profile of both operations and it is anticpated to have the appropriate programmes of the organisation on the website as well as any website links for further information.
If you have any questions about this please either use the contact page of this website or contact the leader of the walk concerned
