Welcome to the Ivel Valley Walkers Website


All Ramblers in-person, group activities, including group walks will be cancelled in England between the 5 November and 2 December 2020. This is in accordance with the governments new national restrictions in England.  This means all group walks, social events and path clearance work (RIPPLE).  The latest information from Ramblers is here



Dear Members,

I am sad to say that the IVW walks programme must be cancelled from Thursday 5th November until at least Wednesday 2nd December, in accordance with the new UK government guidelines.
The Ramblers have also announced it includes path maintenance work (RIPPLE) and many other group activities.

I know these new lock down restrictions are difficult, especially when health and well being remain important and we had managed to get many of our activities up and running again. Thank you to everyone for working together during these last few months.

I hope you'll be able to stay safe and enjoy walks in your local area – on your own, OR
with members of your household and support bubble, OR with one other personal friend – until the restrictions on group activities are eased.

Roy Carter (Chairman)
