Rosemary started her walking life abroad; “I’ve been living in Germany most of my working life, where walking is just part of the culture. When I came back here I thought the first thing you do is join the Ramblers… You join a group and you see this whole spectrum going on, all kinds of people, all kinds of talents”.

I am a staunch defender of the Ramblers. I’ve seen what it can do first-hand… the Ramblers knows how to work for walkers, and it knows how to have fun doing it. We recognise that we need to find our feet in a rapidly changing world. But I know this is just a matter of time, because we are as important now as we’ve ever been.

On a snowy day in Warwickshire, the BRamblers are hard at work. Ignoring the cold, they’re wheeling wheelbarrows, laying down gravel and having a great time. As dog walkers and local residents walk past, thanking us for the work, it’s clear that we’re doing something special.
