This took place on 22nd July with a picnic at the Priscilla Houston memorial stone on Ibberton Hill.

A full coach load for this trip on a very hot day. Two hilly walks round the top of the gorge and one flatter one out to the reservoir took place.
2017 Dorset Area Spider Walk
East Dorset Group supplied two walks for the Dorset Area spider walk. Here are walkers on Eggardon Hill on the shorter of the two walks.
News from the Social Secretary
Our trip to see the Abbotsbury illuminations produced some stunning pictures. Please let us know if you have other ideas of outings you would like to see on our programme.
All England Coastal Access
In 2009 the Government passed the Marine and Coastal Access Act which for the first time gives us the right to a coastal path round England. Dorset was the first place in England for people to get this right of access to the coast along the 17 mile Weymouth Stretch.
Dorset County Councilís Coastal Rangers and Coastal Access Officer ran an event on Sunday 1st July 2012.
On Friday 6th July 2012 Dorset Ramblers walked the whole length of the 17 mile Weymouth stretch of the new Coast Path. Kate Ashbrook, President of the Ramblers, joined the walk and performed a path-opening ceremony by cutting a ribbon.
