Hello Ramblers.

As we start a new programme of rambles. let's call it an OPEN SEASON and invite all our friends. Really. Ramblers, when you think of it, our leaders have prepared such lovely walks it would be a good idea to share them with others who have not yet discovered our club, so bring them along as guests, and some of them might like to become members.

Saturday 29 September: Westminster Cathedral Conference Centre
