I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions. But it can be the ideal time of year to re-invigorate yourself. So if you work at a computer or in an office why not get out there in the fresh air?
Not only can you clear those cobwebs from your head and start toning that fat winter belly with a bit of outdoor action, but you can also combine it with volunteering at the same time.
The Surrey branch of the Ramblers has teamed up with the council to patrol the countryside to make sure paths are kept clear. Volunteers will undertake work such as clearing the overgrowth and fixing signs
If you think that all sounds a bit fuddy duddy, bobble hat and tea flask, then think again and read up on the history of the radical Ramblers Association, which was formed after a mass trespass (resulting in five arrests) of Kinder Scout (the highest point in the peak District) in the 1930s. It remains a key moment in the Ramblers’ history and ever since they have campaigned for open access to the countryside.
So, if you’re feeling a bit revolting this New Year, Surrey County Council wants to hear from a variety of individuals, such as horse riders, and other organisations that want to get involved. You can read more here or email email@example.com
Could rambling be your New Year’s Revolution?
