2018 Walk Leaders Courses

We are always in need of more walk leaders. If you would like to learn more about what is involved take a look at these free courses available to Ramblers members from across Surrey at Wotton on Saturday 21 April and Saturday 18 August.

The training will comprise a morning session on leadership, walk planning, map reading and basic compass work, and an introduction to computer mapping and smart phone navigation apps, followed by an afternoon outdoor practical session. Click here for more information; or contact Fiona, who helps with the organisation of these courses. To book, please complete the form in the Members' area of the Surrey Ramblers website; Fiona or Dave S can advise about the log in process.

The Surrey Three Peaks challenge

The SASH charity is organising a challenge to raise funds for East Surrey Hospital and the wider Surrey and Sussex NHS Healthcare Trust. It will take place on 26 May 2018, starting at Holmbury St Mary. The challenge, which takes walkers up Holmbury Hill, Leith Hill and Box Hill will offer 7, 13 or 26 mile options. See here for the event poster. We should all be so fit by then after our Spring Walks Festival, so maybe some might be up for a 13 mile, or even 26 mile, challenge! If anyone is interested please let Fiona know by 16 April.
