North Devon Ramblers.

Happy 40th Anniversary !

1977 was a memorable year; It was our Queen’s Silver Jubilee; the first Star Wars film was released; Virginia Wade won Wimbledon; petrol was 79p a gallon; Elvis Presley died; the first Apple computer went on sale; Red Rum won The Grand National; the average house price was £ 13,650 and our North Devon Ramblers group was formed, so we thought that it would be good to celebrate. Many things have changed. We now have computers to help with our paperwork and a website so that anyone with internet access can find our walks. Our programme is more stylish and we have two walks most weeks rather than one a fortnight.

Our reputation as a friendly, welcoming group continues and although, over the years members come and go there remains a nucleus of those early members. Some may not walk with us now but they enjoy or social events and continue to support Ramblers with their membership subscriptions each year. We rely on volunteers to run the group and we are always on the lookout for more. Over the past forty years 43 individuals have served on our committee so don’t be shy, give it a go.

Angela and her leaders have ‘pulled out all the stops’ to make this programme a special one with our ‘Extravaganza’ in May. To celebrate our 40th Anniversary we are running 10 walks in 9 days between the 20th and 28th May. East to west moors to coast, 3.5 to 12 miles, by car and by bus. Excellent company. Three lunch/tea options. Two opportunities for a pint. What more could you want? It’s our anniversary but we want to share our celebrations with everyone out there so please spread the word, invite your friends, family and work colleagues to celebrate with us.
