Poem for John Cartner, Chairman, by Fr Paul Swarbrick


Leave me not in the church yard

when I am laid to rest,

But carry me up to the lonely hills

that look towards the west.


 Give me the heather for cover,

and a slab of moorland stone

Sing me the song of the restless wind

and leave me there alone.

 

Give me the far horizon

of the sea and the Solway sky

with showers that freshen the sunlit heath

and dark shadows passing by.

 

Give me the dawn and the sunset,

and leave me to be free,

striding above on the changeless hills

where I will always be.

The bus company we are using is Pickthalls.  The return journey from the walks finishing point is 4.30pm in winter and 5.00pm in summer.  Any new or returning fell-walkers are welcome.

Currently the bus fare for each walk is £9 and annual club membership is £10.  Compare this to parking on National parks car parks e.g. Hawkshead:

Up to 1 hour: £1.80, up to 2 hours: £3, up to 4 hours: £5, up to 12 hours: £7 or Buttermere

Up to 2 hours: £2.90, up to 4 hours: £4.50, up to 12 hours: £6.50

 

From early April until the beginning of September we have a series of short walks on Tuesday evenings (issued in March), usually of around two hours and we also do a Sunday afternoon walk on the alternate weekends to the main ramble.  Both these shorter walks you have to use your own transport (or car share) to get to the start.


Have a look at the A & B Rambles 2017 programme and see what you think. 

The full day Sunday A and B walks are more fell walking than rambling and we go onto the higher fells as a matter of course.  If you are reasonably fit it still may take a bit of effort with aching muscles afterwards but it does get easier the more you do it (or so they say).

 What's best about our club?

We're a friendly, sociable bunch (most rambles finish with a pint in the nearest pub for the car free journey home!)

There are a number of social occasions (quiz nights, Silly Xmas Hat Walk, New Year party, raffles) aimed at fund raising to keep the cost of bus fare down.

Cotswold Outdoor and Lake District Outdoor in Cockermouth will both offer 15% discount on presentation of a valid Workington Ramblers membership card as the club is affiliated to the Ramblers Association. (This is on full price items, it would not include any products that are sale items or special offers.)
