Footprints Rambling Club

Programme of Walks


Footprints Rambling Club : Calendar for 2020.

We’ve enjoyed a super year of 2019 Rambles and Lunches. Thank you for joining us. We meet at 10.15 a.m. and set off at 10.30 a.m. on Saturdays and lunch is normally at 12.30 p.m. If you prefer to join us at lunch, rather than ramble, please let us know. Walks are 3-4 miles in distance. To take full advantage of the warm, summer evenings, two Evening Rambles are on the calendar. You are very welcome to join us regularly or on a “now and again” basis. Here’s to 2020!!
