Wednesday Rambling Group for Men
Our club has been in existence for over 50 years, being formed in 1968 for retired and semi-retired men,
and the original name remains to the present day. We do not have a single elected official, all necessary
duties, such as leading walks are carried out on a voluntary basis.
We meet for walks every Wednesday at the Transport Interchange in Pond Street, Sheffield what-ever the
weather, travel mainly by public transport and always welcome new members.
Occasionally we start walks at other locations. Members are aware of this through a monthly walks list
circulated by email, printed copy, the Sheffield Telegraph also the Sheffield Star on Saturday and eventually
via this website.
Walks vary between 9-12 miles. There are some with break off points near public transport, that suit those
who prefer to walk shorter distances. Our programme of regular walks covers the Peak District, South
Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and West Yorkshire.
Two or three times a year we organise car rambles, these give us the option of walking in areas not covered
by local transport.
We also enjoy three coach rambles a year. These take place the first Wednesday of May,
July and September and guests are invited to join us. Walks in the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors,
Wales and Lancashire are some of the locations visited and all days are well attended.
Members also organise a week’s walking break at the beginning of May.
Our Christmas Dinner takes place in December, part of the cost being subsidised by the club.
The yearly membership fee is £3
