Local walkers - we need you

Are you looking to apply or learn new skills in high-level political lobbying? Do you care about local policies and plans that affect walkers? Would you like to take getting involved with the Ramblers to the next level?

The election of the new Metro Mayor is a great opportunity for us to make Greater Manchester even better for walking. We’ve been campaigning and lobbying on walking issues for many years, but now we want to step up the pace. We’re looking for new volunteers to join us to help build relationships with decision-makers, research and scrutinise local policies and promote Ramblers’ messages and campaigns.

If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, then please join us as a Local Organiser. This new volunteer role is supported by staff in the Ramblers central office, in conjunction with GM&HP area. Training will be provided and expenses will be paid.

BOLTON RAMBLERS is part of The Walking Partnership.

This partnership, supported by Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, provides direct financial contributions to local walking groups to help with organising group walks, encouraging people to get out walking, helping to clear and improve footpaths, providing equipment to help walkers etc. Now our group can benefit directly. Ramblers Worldwide Holidays operate group walking holidays in the UK and all around the world. Holidays are graded in terms of difficulty, and there is a full range from sightseeing right up to hut-to-hut mountain treks. Take a look at their website on www.ramblersholidays.co.uk or give them a call on 01707 331133 for more details or to order a brochure. Remember when you book to quote the name of our group, and we will then receive a contribution of £10 per person on UK holidays, £20 per person on short haul holidays, and £30 per person on long haul holidays. This extra funding could really make a difference to us! For more details, visit The Walking Partnership website at www.thewalkingpartnership.org.uk.
