The Riddings Ramblers is the name given to an informal group of Christchurch members and friends, who meet once a month except in December and January, for a walk of 6 to 8 miles. A leader is selected from the group for each walk. Some walks start from Christchurch at 9:30am, and others involve a short car journey or bus or train ride, often into the magnificent scenery of the Yorkshire Dales or the Pennines.
In summer it is usual to take a picnic lunch but, when the weather is unreliable, a pub lunch is sometimes incorporated into the itinerary.
Numbers vary from about 6 to 20 according to the day and other commitments. Walks are usually easy to moderate in difficulty but walking boots and weatherproof clothing are required. Information about the next walk(s) can be obtained from the Church Office.
It is a pleasant way to get to know people and to keep fit!
New walkers are always welcome.
Information about upcoming Rambles can be found in the Weekly Notices.
