Chorley Ramblers are your local group of the Ramblers. We ae a very varied, active and friendly walking group.
We have over 280 members and arrange over 150 walks per year, led by experienced leaders. Lengths of walks range from 3 miles to 10+ miles.
We especially welcome new ramblers. You do not initially need to belong to the Ramblers to try us out. You are welcomed to join us on up to 3 ‘taster walks’. Just select a suitable walk from our walk programme and come along. Because of the Ramblers Data Protection policy you must inform the walk leader of your presents.
When you join the Chorley Ramblers you are actually joining the National Ramblers Association and can walk with any Ramblers group in the country giving you access to over 40,000 guided walks every year.
We are the only charity dedicated to looking after paths and green spaces, leading walks, opening up new places to explore and encouraging everyone to get outside and discover how walking boosts your health and your happiness
Chorley Ramblers take Data Protection very seriously. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU legal framework which comes into force on 25 May 2018. Its purpose is to give individuals more control and protection of their personal data. It introduces new regulations for all organisations that process (collect, manage and use) personal data. As the Ramblers process data, and our volunteers process data on our behalf, we are legally required to comply with the GDPR.
What one of our new members said:
It's good for body and soul, being out and about in the countryside with like minded people. You can talk as much or as little as you want with other walkers. It's a safe space for everyone. Whoever you are, if you want to walk then you will be welcomed. It's also great fun. There's such a mix of characters that you're bound to have some laughs along the way. It is, without doubt, the best £30 ish I've ever spent.
The Chorley Ramblers Committee have made the following changes to our walk Programme.
1/ The Coach Ramble has been postponed until further notice.
2/ The Car Share from Hallgate Car Park has stopped and will be reviewed in July 2020. Walk participants must make there own arrangements if they are attending the walk. 3/ The Walk Leader may decide if he wishes to cancel the walk or arrange a local walk. 4/ Please follow Government and NHS guidelines.
