Newton Abbot and District Ramblers
CORONA VIRUS UPDATE
Club Position as of 5th January
Following the Prime Minister's television address on the evening of Monday 4th January, and in accordance with this Government document, all of our group walks are now cancelled until further notice.
The lockdown is expected to last until mid-February, so we have based our website on a possible date of Sunday 14th February, for resumption of our walks programme. We will change this date nearer the time, if necessary.
Although you are now expected to stay at home, there are exceptions. For example, you are still allowed to go out to buy food, and you can still go out for exercise once a day, within your local area, with your household or with one other person.
You don't have to live in Newton Abbot - our members come from Exeter, Dawlish, Teignmouth, Torbay, Totnes, Ashburton, Buckfastleigh and beyond.
Our walks go anywhere in South Devon, East Devon or Dartmoor, with occasional forays into North Devon and further afield.
We are a flourishing and friendly group, with no age limits, and many of our members are senior citizens.
Each week we have up to six walks, of anything from two to twelve miles, spread over four or five days of the week. A typical walk might see 10 to 30 people turn up, depending on the weather.
Some walks are over fairly flat terrain, but the best views tend to be found on walks which involve a hill at some point. Each walk is led by a volunteer member, and no-one gets left behind.
A click or a tap on Forthcoming Walks will show you our walks for the next few weeks.
If the print size on any of our pages isn't quite right for you, you can zoom in or out by holding down your Control key and scrolling the wheel on your mouse. Alternatively, hold down Control and press + to zoom larger, or - to zoom smaller.
We occasionally update this site, principally the Forthcoming Walks, Forthcoming Events, Notice Board and Walk Reports pages. To make sure you are seeing the latest version of whichever page you are looking at, click or tap on the Reload symbol which you should see in the header section at the top centre of each page. Alternatively, press the F5 key, which is in the top row of most keyboards.
If any page on this site still doesn't look quite right, try holding down your Ctrl (Control) shift key, before pressing F5. This will reload all of the files associated with the page.
