Rambles Secretary

Gloria S has decided to step down as Rambles Secretary after completion of the 2019 Summer card and the club requires a replacement for this important position which includes membership of the committee.


The main duties involved occur twice a year and are as follows:-


Around February/September each year, approach potential walk leaders to fill programme card for the next 6 months. Weekend walks mostly take place on alternate Saturday/Sunday, the week when there is not a Thursday walk. (Summer card runs from beginning of May to end of October, Autumn/Winter card from beginning of November to end of April)


Once dates are filled, forward details to Sarah S, who will type the programme card and publicity leaflet. Liaise with Sarah as to the date this information is required.  Printing is done at Bishop Stopford School,so there is a need to be aware of school closures, particularly at Easter for printing of Summer Card.


Sarah will then

·         Prepare labels from the membership register.

·         Purchase enveloped

·         "Stuff” envelopes

·         Arrange for envelopes to be distributed

·         Enter (weekend) rambles on to website (inform Sarah of any changes/cancellations of rambles) for updating on website



Ideally, delivery of forthcoming card, should be completed at least two weeks prior to the first ramble on programme.


If you are interested in taking on this important role in the club please contact the chairman via his normal contact details.

Dogs on walks reminder.

Just a brief reminder that as a club whilst we welcome dogs on walks it is our policy that that they be kept on a lead ( this includes flexi leads) at all time unless otherwise directed.

Could walk leaders  contacted by people wishing to walk as visitors and bring their dogs please inform them of the club's policy?
David H.
Chairman KDRC.
