At a recent meeting with TfGM about resurrecting the "Manchester Green Corridor", it was agreed that the routes need
to be checked before they can go out again i.e. in some places the metro now crosses the routes. So volunteers are needed to check the 14 routes
so that we can put the routes back up onto our website. Please reply by October 22nd

Walking is something to be enjoyed. It is not boring and not a hobby reserved for people of a certain age. At times it can involve hard work,
especially when you head off into the hills, but generally you get more out of a walk than the effort you put in. Besides providing an interesting
way to keep fit, you see Britain at its best with fascinating insights into the countryside, its wildlife, scenery and of course its weather.
Keep up with Ramblers' Campaigns
It's also really important that we remember that the Ramblers
is NOT just about going on lovely walks (great as that is!); the Ramblers is also a campaigning organisation on
a range of issues.
One team vision and plans for GB festivals.
The purpose of our GB walking festivals is to inspire people to join our fantastic walking community. Weʼd like to thank all of you for your
fantastic festivals work to date, as well as taking the opportunity to publicly thank the players of the Peopleʼs Postcode Lottery for their
continued support, which is enabling us to make our festivals bigger and better.
Back in January, we shared the dates for Festival of Winter Walks (23 December 2017 to 07 January 2018) and today we are pleased to announce the dates of
Walk About: Saturday 26 May to Sunday 03 June 2018. Whether you're organising something for one day, the whole festival period or something in between,
your efforts are very much appreciated.
We are also sharing today our one team vision and plans for GB festivals
This key document sets out:
- Progress so far around festivals
- Key things we would like volunteers to do around our forthcoming festivals to make them a success
- Exciting new developments such as the award and showcase area of work
And much more besides.
Do you believe in working together and wish to receive further support to make the most of our GB walking festivals?
Then please drop us an email to email@example.com. Let us know what you are planning to do,
and how we can help you achieve it.
