Worcester Ramblers Logo  A Sad Message from Barbara
    Barbara Hopper has sent a message to let her rambling friends know that her husband the Reverend Peter Hopper has died. Everyone is welcome to attend the funeral service to 4th July at 11.45am as St Nicholas Church, Warndon Villages, St Nicholas Lane, Worcester WR4 0SL and then 1pm at Worcester Crematorium, Tintern Avenue, Worcester WR3 8HA with refreshments afterwards at Lyppard Grange Hub (Community Centre), Ankerage Green, Worcester WR4 0DZ.

Peter and Barbara relocated from Sheffield to Warndon Villages following their retirements, however for a while Peter continued to minister at the delightful black and white restored church of St Nicholas. They shared a love of the countryside and regularly attended walks together, often leading walks for Worcester group.

Worcester Ramblers members send their condolences to Barbara and family at this sad time.

Worcester Ramblers Logo First Aid Tips for Walkers
   
Walking is a relatively low-risk activity, but you should expect the unexpected and ensure at least one person in your walking group has a basic knowledge of first aid in case someone falls ill or is injured.

Here is an article produced by the Rambers and The British Red Cross that gives some useful information on dealing with emergencies and summoning help which also contains a very useful video, Click the symbol to view it.

You can also view this article "First Aid Tips for Walkers" under the 'Useful Guides' within the 'submit a walk' section of the website.

Worcester Ramblers Logo  Changes to walks programme & calendar

 

We have previously inserted a ‘walk required’ request within the walks programme whenever there have been any gaps in the schedule. However, anyone quickly glancing at the programme might think it was full, when in fact it was not.


So we have changed things a little. Any requests for walks or recce’s will now appear in the calendar and will be in red text. All entries in the programme will be planned scheduled walks. These will also appear in the calendar in green text.


So if you are looking to submit a walk, look in the calendar first to check what gaps there might be in the programme.
Thank You
