Walks Programme



Due to the Covid 19 virus Ramblers have suspended all walks, trips and work parties etc. until the end of May – see https://www.ramblers.org.uk/volunteer-zone/coronavirus.aspx.

The committee have reluctantly decided that Reading Rambling Club has no option but to follow suit.

Therefore, the RRC walks programme is suspended with immediate effect until the end of May.

Meanwhile, as stated by Ramblers, walking independently in the countryside remains an excellent way to maintain health and wellbeing provided no one is displaying any symptoms of coronavirus or has been in contact with anyone showing symptoms and walkers remain 2 metres from others. So, if you still need/want to walk please contact one or two fellow members and make your own informal arrangements, but minimise the number and contact.

You are advised to check times of public transport before use.

For a map showing the start point click on the Grid Reference - the blue letters and numbers.

New members: we usually stop for a picnic lunch on Wednesday walks.

All landline telephone numbers are Reading code (0118) unless stated otherwise
