Thame & Wheatley
& Wheatley Group covers some 34 parishes within the Vale of Oxford. The area
provides a variety of fascinating features. The Thame Valley Way offers a
peaceful rural riverside walk, the Oxfordshire Way cuts through a dozen
attractive villages and the newly designated Shakespeare's Way also takes in
many local parishes.
On the edge of the area the Chiltern Hills And Shotover Country Park afford challenging hill climbs with superb views. Local footpaths also provide access to many historic sites, including Rycote Park and Chapel, the Saxon church of Waterperry House and the grounds of Shotover House.
The group contributes walks of all distances to the area programme and offers a warm welcome to all new comers. For more details of the group, its walks and activities please call Mike Smith on 01865 874300.
Thame & Wheatley Group Joins the Walking Partnership
Thame & Wheatley Ramblers group has recently joined The Walking Partnership. This new partnership, supported by Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, provides direct financial contributions to local walking groups to help with organising group walks, encouraging people to get out walking, helping to clear and improve footpaths, providing equipment to help walkers etc. Over the past 65 years, Ramblers Worldwide Holidays has given many millions of pounds to assist walking charities and conservation projects in Britain and the countries they visit on their worldwide holidays. Now our group can benefit directly.
Remember when you book to quote the name of our group, and we will then receive a contribution of £10 per person on UK holidays, £20 per person on short haul holidays, and £30 per person on long haul holidays. This extra funding could really make a difference to us!
