Visitors Warwickshire Area of The Ramblers

Representing RAMBLERS Groups for Warwickshire and the West Midlands

As an Area, we are more than simply the sum of our Groups. All the work carried out by us in the Area - including by our Groups - is planned, organised and carried out by volunteers.

You can be involved

If you are concerned about conditions for walkers in Warwickshire, there is bound to be a way you can get involved in our work. We take important decisions at our committee meetings, but outside the Committee there are still plenty of ways that you can help. We’ve sketched out some of them here to give you a flavour or our work, and if you’d like to find out more, we’ll be delighted to hear from you.

Task forces and work parties

Several of our Groups have voluntary task forces working for local authorities replacing gates stiles and bridges; cutting back overgrown paths; helping to make the countryside more accessible. Or, from the comfort of your own home, you could help with our footpath and countryside work. You could help to publicise our work at shows, on the Internet, at exhibitions and in local press.

Many choose to get involved in their local Group, but nothing obliges them in this way. You might find another one which is more active in a particular area of interest to you. You can find a list of all the Area’s Groups here, under Warwickshire (which includes West Mids).

If you’d like to help, and find something that suits you, please get in touch and tell us about your particular interests and we can talk through the opportunities. Have a look at Volunteer Development Days events - more on the main web site.

Supporting the Committee

Our Area Council is lively and friendly with efficient meetings held every three months in Warwick. Sometimes we have vacancies and existing office-holders would also be happy to hand over to fresh blood as this keeps the Area fresh and invigorated.

If you’d like to know more about getting involved in Area Council, please get in touch. We can give you descriptions for the main roles, and tell you about the support available and the rewards of this kind of involvement.  You’re welcome to come along to our meetings to get a flavour of what it’s all about. We can tell you the date and time of the next one. For more information on the work of the Area and how to get involved, contact us through a  Committee Member.
