Welcome to the Nottingham and Derby Walking Group

Your Winter Walks Programme needs you – walks leaders needed!

Thanks to everyone who’s volunteered to lead a walk at recent walks & pub meets, your new Winter Walks Programme is nearly ready, but there are still a few walks needing a leader to make them happen.

If you’ve not already offered, please can you help by offering to lead one of the walks below – just e-mail us at walks@ndwg.org.uk and let us know which walk(s) you’d like to do.

Sat18-Nov-17 – Gunthorpe & River Trent – Long 15 miles Grade E (flat)
Tue26-Dec-17 – Boxing Day Walk: Kedleston Hall – 7 E
Sat17-Feb-18 – Tatenhill (near Burton) – 6 E
Sun25-Feb-18 – Cutthroat Bridge (Dark Peak) – Short 7.5 D
Fri30-Mar-18 (Easter Friday) – Mount St Bernard Abbey – 7.5 E
Sat28-Apr-18 (NOT the Bank Hol w/e) – Birmingham City Canal Walk – 8 E

If you haven’t led a walk before, its not that difficult and if you need any advice with map reading etc. the committee are always happy to help.  Most of these are quite short or easy routes, so why not have a try?

Thanks
Charlotte & Luke  (your Walks Organisers)

 

Our Walking Group

The NDWG was set up in 1997 by Kevin Matthews and Sarah Rich who met on an overseas walking holiday in Alpbach, Austria and thought it would be a great idea to see a young people’s walking group set up back home.

We are a group of people aged between 20s & 30s and over who love to walk and socialise together. We have around 300 members and organise regular guided walks on Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesday evenings, and regular social events too. It is a great way to explore the outdoors and meet new people.

Join us for a couple of easy walks and experience this fun and friendly group for yourself, or come to one of the monthly pub meets and meet people from the group.

Take a look around our website and join our Facebook group.

The Ramblers

We are a local branch of The Ramblers and are now part of their ever increasing number of local young persons’ groups. To support the work carried out by the Ramblers, we work to protect our local rights of way by surveying paths and reporting any problems. We also help to defend the beauty of our local countryside by running regular conservation weekends, often at rock bottom accommodation prices and with a social side too.

October AGM

The AGM is nearly upon us (12th Oct, 8pm, Canal House) where a new committee will be elected and this is your chance to contribute to the continued success of NDWG. Have some ideas you’d like to see implemented? Come along and get yourself elected!
In addition:

  • Llangollen New Year opens
  • Hartington Christmas meal opens
  • Raffle for a free place at Hartington Christmas meal, runners up £50 and £25 Cotswold Outdoor vouchers
