This is how these rambles could operate:
1. Members are asked to volunteer to lead these rambles and also to liaise with other interested members.
2. There will have to be a maximum of 6 members per ramble group, but there could possibly be 2 or more groups, this would be decided by the ramble leader. It is suggested that if there are more than 1 group, that they should keep 20 meters apart.
3. The rambles should be circular with the start /finish point easily accessible by car, bike, bus or walking. From 4th July, social distancing will reduce to one metre plus, so this could assist with car sharing.
4. These local rambles could take place on any day of the week and any time of the day. This would be decided by the ramble leader.
5. It is hoped that these rambles will be of varying lengths, to suit the requirements of all members.
6. Once these rambles have been planned, the ramble leader should contact Tony Anderson so that the following information can be posted on the website and emailed to members:
Interested members can then contact the ramble leader direct.
Note: The evening ramble at Stillingfleet on 21/7 will go ahead under these recommendations. Please contact Jill Turnbull if you wish to go.
If you know of any member who does not have access to the club's website, please pass this information on to them.
Many thanks Norman

14th Evening ramble - Stillingfleet Jill Turnbull leads this evening ramble from Stillingfleet, a village 7 miles south of York on the Banks of the Ouse. Meet Jill for a 7.00 p.m at the small car parking area by the Methodist Chapel. Please contact Jill Turnbull if you wish to go.
(Cancelled) 26th Richmond Fine North Yorkshire town on the route of the Coast to Coast Walk. The town sits astride the River Swale which features in many rambles in the area. There are plenty of places for refreshments in Richmond after a good day’s rambling.
23rd Bransdale Bransdale is north of Kirkbymoorside and known as the ‘lost dale’, it is a gem, smaller and more remote than other dales. It is part of the North Yorkshire Moors Site of Special Scientific Interest, its tiny river, Hodge Beck, flows into the River Dove at Farndale which then joins the River Rye. Seldom visited, Bransdale is well worth exploring.
13th Goathland ‘Heartbeat’ country beckons for this Sunday’s rambles. You might recognise various locations from the TV series in the village before (or after) you enjoy the many ramble routes emanating from this popular destination on the North Yorkshire Moors.
4th Fountains Abbey The majestic Fountain’s Abbey is always busy with visitors, but you can ramble away from the crowds and still enjoy the Abbey ruins and adjoining parkland. The Cistercian abbey was founded by disenchanted Benedictine monks from St Mary’s Abbey, York, in the 14th Century and it became one of the wealthiest Abbeys in the country. There is much to see and enjoy as well as good rambling. Don’t forget your National Trust card.
25th Thixendale We venture to the rolling chalk land of the Wolds for this Sunday’s rambles. The village is in a pretty valley 20 miles east of York and offers access to some good rambling countryside. ** End of BST – clocks go back one hour **
