"WILL YO COME O' SUNDAY MORNING"

Did you know Bolton had its own mass trespass on Sunday 6th September 1896 there was a march to reclaim an ancient right of way over Winter Hill.

This year is the 125th anniversary. Local and national organisations are going to commemorate this event and Bolton Ramblers are members of the organising committee. We are at the planning stage with the proposal to have a commemorative walk on Sunday 5th September 2021. For more information on it's history and coming events click here.

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.
