It's getting easier to set up new Ramblers groups (18/10/10)

We've just published advice on setting up new groups. This follows a rash of new groups being set up across the country - many aimed at people in their 40-50s, for those who like shorter walks. 

I'd like to see more of a variety of groups (and sub-groups in existing ones) in the Ramblers, catering for different age groups and interests.  What about setting up a bird watcher's walking group, for instance?  It's a good way to attract more members. 

The advice also covers what to do if your group is changing it's name, or is closing down. 

We're currently trying to cut the bureaucracy in setting up and running Ramblers groups - to make it easy for volunteers. 

Here's the link to the guidance:
