A warm welcome to Peterborough Ramblers
Latest additions: The Folksworth Walk in pictures and The Marholm Walk in pictures
Aside from our regular walks we have two special occasions coming up.
25 November: Peterborough Ramblers AGM, starting with light refreshments followed by a walk. This starts at 11:00 in the village hall in Peakirk (PE6 7NG)
16 December: Peterborough Ramblers Christmas Lunch. The cost is £21 per person. Meet at Peterborough Milton Golf Club, off Castor Road-Marholm Road (PE6 7AG), map/grid ref: 227/TL138985 at 12.30 for 13:00.
For the lunch please book with Joyce. She is taking payment in cash only which she must have by Thursday 25th November to reserve your place. She also needs your menu choices. It would help her greatly if you put your money and menu choices in an envelope clearly marked with your name(s) so that she can pop it in her backpack on a walk.
Jane W is organising the raffle. The general idea is that everyone brings a prize and everyone gets a raffle ticket, free of charge. Please give your prizes to Jane on the day. Here is the menu…

Below are some of the latest additions to our website.
We always welcome commentaries and pictures on our walks from anyone who is on the walk. Please email to Tony@schools.co.uk and please at the top of the email put as the subject line “Peterborough Ramblers Photos xxx” where xxx is the name of the walk. And of course please add your name.
And don’t forget the ongoing Rutland Walking Festival – details are now online here.
Peterborough Ramblers is a group of members of the Ramblers dedicated to exploring and walking the footpaths and by-ways from Oakham in the west to Wisbech in the east, from Bourne in the north to Hemingford Gray in the south.
We actively welcome non-members on our walks – of which there are between one and three arranged each week, both on weekdays and Sundays.
But please do note that our walks on Thursdays are between 4.5 miles and 5.5 miles, while the Sunday walks are between 6 miles and 9 miles. You should ensure that you have an adequate level of fitness to tackle such a walk before joining one of our groups.
If you have not walked such distances before you will probably find it best to start with a Walking for Health Walk programme.
If you want to see what our walks are like please do have a look at…
The Rambling Diaries and The photo diaries
At present we do ask everyone who is wanting to join us on a walk to send a text message to say that you would like to join us. Simply text the leader of the walk with your name and the date of the walk that you would like to attend. The leader of each walk is shown on our Forthcoming Walks page
We do encourage non-members to take one or two walks with us to get the feel of what we do, before inviting you to join the Ramblers.
Joining the Ramblers is undertaken through the national website where you will find out much more about the activities of the Ramblers nationally.
Once you are a member of the Ramblers you will not only be able to continue walking with our group, but should you wish to, join in with any other local Ramblers group in the country.
What’s more you’ll also have access to the Ramblers vast index of walks which cover the whole country and can be downloaded so that you can plan your own afternoon out, wherever you are, and whenever you want.
On the site you can find….

If you have thoughts, ideas or pictures which could be added to this site, please do email me at Tony@schools.co.uk; I am very keen to expand the site so it becomes a complete record of everything we do.
