East Dorset Group is one of six groups within Dorset Area
East Dorset Group and Covid 19 - Latest
East Dorset Group has decided that with such short notice of restarting group walks it is impossible for us to run walks until at least the beginning of August.
The Ramblers sent out a notice stating that group walks can start again on 1st July, with a number of conditions attached. One is that there should not be more than six people on a group walk. Your East Dorset Group Committee is currently discussing this new freedom and news of how we intend to approach this will appear on this page soon.
We have just sent out our July to October 2020 programme to as many members as we could reach by email. We are hoping to send out a print version to all members soon.
PLEASE NOTE that this does not mean our walks will restart in July. We have to await permission from The Ramblers and our programme will become active once we are allowed to follow it.
Since the latest government advice, updated information from The Ramblers can be seen here.
This means that all walks and events will be cancelled until at least the end of June and probably a lot longer.
East Dorset Group and Covid 19 - Recent
East Dorset Group has now put together a programme of walks for the July to October period. We do not know when we will be able to go out on led walks again but when we can, our programme will be available. At the moment we have no means of distributing it but as soon as we can, we will either post it to all members or email it to as many members as we can and make it available through this website.

Advice from The Ramblers can be seen here.
All Ramblers group walks have been suspended until at least the end of May 2020. We do not know when we will be able to start walking with each other again. In the hope that it will not be too long, East Dorset Group is currently assembling a July to October programme as usual.
Sadly East Dorset Group has also had to decide to cancel the 2020 Purbeck Plod.
Covid 19 walking news
All the Wessex Wanderers walks this year have now been cancelled.
Group Winter Meal
Our 2020 winter meal was held at the Bridge Hotel at Longham. Sadly the terrible weather and flooding meant that no walk was held before the meal.
Group coach trip to Bath
A full coach took us to Bath. Some walked, some explored but all had a very good day.
