Welcome to ERYRI Ramblers / Croeso i Cerddwyr ERYRI
Our group activities: * Walking and Scrambling * Social Events * Footpath Maintenance *
We are a welcoming, friendly group. If you a newcomer to walking or a regular walker interested in trying something new, contact us or simply join us for one of our walks. Come and try us out for two or three walks and see how things go.
We have great walks, ranging from short, easy strolls, amazing cliff walks along the stunning Llyn coastline to superb ridge walks and scrambles in Snowdonia.
Also we have a popular range of social events: a long weekend, annual dinner plus a quiz night (see below).
Joining the Ramblers, Britain’s major organisation for walkers, will seem the natural, healthy thing to do!
Putting something back, we have a team of enthusiastic volunteers Tim Taclo working in liaison with Gwynedd Council to improve footpaths.
Their efforts are appreciated by local communities and fellow walkers.
We have strong links and share walks with all Ramblers Groups in North Wales, particularly:
Ynys Mon, Conwy Valley, Vale of Clwyd, Clwydian, Meirionnydd and Llyn Ramblers. See the Ramblers website for all North Wales Walks.
### NEWS ###
Welsh Government COVID 19 - Lockdown Level 4 from 20 December:-
Group Walks Cancelled, no travel and only individual/bubble outdoor exercise.
From Angela Charlton Ramblers HQ Wales
The Welsh Government announced that we will move into Alert Level 4 (Very High Risk)
We’re sad to say that Ramblers group activities must be suspended from Sunday 20 December, in line with the new Welsh Government guidelines.
These new restrictions affect all in-person group activities including group walks, training, social events, and path maintenance working groups. Activities such as AGMs must be held online.
The Welsh government will review the restrictions every three weeks from January. Please do continue to check the Ramblers website for the latest Coronavirus advice and FAQs.
We will update all members in Wales tomorrow and add the word ‘cancelled’ to walk listings on the Ramblers website and app, up to Sunday 17 January. Please do share this update via your own Group and Area networks too.
We know that the latest restrictions will be difficult, especially as many of us were looking forward to walking together over the Christmas holidays. We so hope that you will be able to enjoy some local walks during this time, either on your own or with your household or support bubble.
Thank you for all of your support this year.
Director of Wales
From January 2021 we will publish a rolling programme - see Walks
Saturday 21 November 2020 Canolfan Fron
It’s the time of year when the great and good win awards.
Rachel has been our star walk leader this year, her Famous Short Walks have probably attracted more ramblers than any other leader in North Wales.
This has given our Ramblers and friends the healthy benefits of enjoying the great outdoors in wonderful scenery - and perhaps boosted the profits of Canolfan Fron!
There are Emmy’s, BAFTA’s and Oscars – well we in Eryri have WALTERS!
RACHEL PLAXTON was appointed Eryri WALK LEADER of the YEAR 2020
Rachel’s response on Facebook:
I am overwhelmed at being awarded Walks Leader of the year! The beautiful cup has pride of place on my dining room dresser. I look at it in surprised delight! Thank you all for coming on my walks & for all the wonderful comments made.
Thank you, Roy, for your generous eulogy... You all kept it totally secret, so I had no idea why you wanted to make a speech at the start of Saturday’s walk, & was lost for words. I was amazed you all turned out for the walk on such a dismal day! Thank you for your wholehearted support& appreciation. It is wonderfully affirming.
My next Short Walks will be Friday, December 4th, 10.30am; Saturday 19th; Saturday January2nd; Saturday 16th; And Friday 29th January 2021 a WWF Big Winter Wander, sponsored walk to raise money to preserve biodiversity, so our walks continue to be full of super wild life for all to enjoy. I will enrol 25 that day, hoping to raise £250, which the government will double if the total raised nation-wide reaches 2 million!
