Description

Welcome to the Ramblers Roadshow 2017

Join us to find out more about how to get the most out of your Ramblers membership, to meet other members and volunteers and get direct access to our walking experts and specialist partners at one of our free Ramblers Roadshows.

Learn more about our organisation and vision, what we do as a charity and the impact that we make, as well as the chance to develop your skills and knowledge as a walker or as a volunteer.

Choose from our selection of free workshops. Whether you're just taking your first steps as a walker or are a regular volunteer with the Ramblers you'll find a workshop for you. We've outlined each workshop and who they are aimed at.

In the morning you can choose from:

  • First aid for walkers and basic map skills (Suitable for Anyone)
    This workshop is split into two sessions. The first aid section is run by the British Red Cross and aimed at anyone who goes out walking. It will help you build your knowledge so that you feel confident if something ever goes wrong. A short and active introduction to the basics of lowland navigation in conjunction with the Outdoor Activities Team from Falkirk Community Trust.

  • Creating Inclusive Walks (Suitable for volunteers)
    Supporting walk leaders to be able to include all types of walkers, no matter what their ability or need

  • How to promote your group (Suitable for volunteers)
    Sharing examples of Ramblers using social media, press, posters, attractive walk programmes and welcoming websites.

  • Stand up for walking (Suitable for everyone)
    How does walking fit into politics in Scotland and how do we make the case for walking. This workshop will look at the political context in Scotland and how we can all make a difference.

In the afternoon you can choose from:

  • Basic Navigation (Suitable for Anyone)
    Supporting walk leaders to be able to include all types of walkers, no matter what their ability or need. The aim is to help you to increase your confidence to deliver good practice, to communicate effectively and to find out where to go for further information.

It focuses on how you can use the Ramblers website, Group Walks and Events Manager and Ramblers Routes to make group activities engaging and attractive.

  • Go for a walk (Suitable for Anyone)
    If you’ve never been on a Ramblers led walk before why not find out what it’s all about. Join one of our volunteer walk leaders for a short walk around Kelvingrove Park.
