Weekend Walks Coordinator
To our Fellow Ramblers
As lockdown has started to lift, your group have started to put on a walking programme in a Covid-secure way with limited numbers at the discretion of the Leader and in accordance with National guidelines.
Walks are being reccied and our calendar is starting to be populated. You will notice the starting point is not advertised until you request a place, this is to keep the numbers manageable.
Let's get rambling and meet your fellow walkers! If you feel able to lead a walk, have a look at our new Walk Leaders Resource page there is lots of help and support on there.
Happy, Safe Walking!
A big thank you to your organisation for agreeing to be a supporter of the new Worcestershire Active Travel Partnership. Collectively our organisations have a membership of over 30,000. The majority will have a vote in the County Council election on 6 May.
What would be really helpful now is to make your members aware of our website where they can see the commitments made by candidates standing in their local area. The final list of candidates won’t be available until 9 April, but we’ve already obtained commitments from over 70 of them, with more being added each day.
It would be great therefore if you could send a short message similar to this to your members:
As an organisation we recognise the importance and benefits of encouraging active travel. That’s why we agreed to support Worcestershire Active Travel Partnership’s ‘We Walk, We Cycle, We Vote' campaign. They’re trying to make sure that the next County Council with its transport, public health and environmental responsibilities gives a higher priority to encouraging and making it easier and safer to walk and cycle rather than drive for more of our shorter journeys. The next County Council elections take place on 6 May. Candidates standing in your area have been polled and those who have responded to express their support for active travel can be found on the Worcestershire Active Travel website at https://sites.google.com/view/worcestershireatp/responses Perhaps something to consider when deciding who to vote for.
