Summary of our recent 2014 AGM

E-mail Print PDF
  1. The Annual General Meeting of Southbank Ramblers was held on 22nd November. As usual the meeting was preceded by a walk, a light lunch and tea/coffee with homemade cakes. And as usual it was well attended with some 50 people.
  2. It has been a successful year. Membership is up, at 685 plus 183 associate members. Our finances are also healthy, helped by the move to increasing use of email to communicate the walks programme.  We are looking to use more of our resources to raise awareness of Ramblers in the wider local community.
  3. Thanks to the efforts of our leaders, and skilful programme organisation, in the year we have held 156 day walks, during weekdays and weekends, with very varied locations and length. Walks are well attended by Southbank members and we have also welcomed many people from other groups as well as newcomers to Ramblers.
  4. The AGM had a talk from Clara Jones from Ramblers’ HQ, who explained the organisation of the national programme  Walking for Health and how we can play a part in offering health walks for this worthy programme.
  5. The meeting elected a new Committee of 12 people, with Sue Ellenby as Chair and Dudley Cloake as Vice Chair.  Margaret Wasdell, John Pestle and Diane Kavanagh left the Committee and there were grateful thanks for all their contributions, as well as to Dudley for his 3 year stint as Chair.
  6. All Southbank members and associate members are very welcome to give the Committee feedback and suggestions at any time, and to get involved, eg with the Committee’s work, or as a leader, etc. To contact us please email via the following link: SOUTH BANK General Enquiries.
  7. Whether linked to Southbank or not, do follow our programme and you will be very welcome to join us on a walk !

Welcome to South Bank Ramblers

E-mail Print PDF

Hello and welcome to South Bank Ramblers' website. If this is your first visit we'd like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about who we are and what we do.

South Bank Ramblers formed more than twenty years ago. The group has a diverse membership covering a range of ages and backgrounds. Although most members are based in the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark, others are drawn from a number of London boroughs or even further afield. A love of walking is the group's engine and focus; for some it is a pleasure, for others a passion.

The group provides a comprehensive programme of walks. The walks take place, most usually, somewhere in the South East of England and are accessible from London by public transport. Walks vary in length, usually between four and eighteen miles, and vary in difficulty, anything from the comfortably paced to the positively challenging. They often include an optional pub refreshment stop, either during or after the walk, giving members the opportunity to get to know one another.

Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays are the more usual walking days but the group occasionally organizes walks on other weekdays too. These weekday walks include interest walks within London.  At a leisurely pace, the routes of these walks cover many points of interest. On occasion the group also organizes weekend trips of two or three days duration.

Membership of South Bank Ramblers is restricted to members of the Ramblers Association. Membership of the Ramblers Association can be taken out for a small annual fee. For further information, send us an email by clicking on the following link   Membership Enquiries . Meanwhile, feel free to come along on a walk or two. We look forward to welcoming you.
