SAD LOSS OF ANOTHER MUCH LOVED RAMBLING FRIEND
We are sorry to pass on the sad news that Arthur Rowe has passed away on the 13th January 2017, peacefully at the nursing home where he was resident. Further details can be obtained from this weeks Hereford Times.
Arthur was a great friend of those who belonged to Herefordshire Ramblers in the 1990's and beyond. He had joined the group fairly soon after it was formed and was an active member leading walks and enjoying social events.
He was sadly missed by those who knew him when he had to give up walking several years ago. Our thoughts go out to his family at this sad time.

It will pass through a diverse range of landscapes from pastoral farming through to remote uplands, and mixed broadleaved woodlands. For more information please click Here

After having been nearly blown off their feet while on a recce on the Ceredigion Coast Path, John Winterfeld and Phil Bauer led thirty two Herefordshire Ramblers in fairer weather on our annual away weekend, this time based at the Plas Dolau Hostel. Our Friday walk, recced by Heather and Annie, was in the Rheidol Valley on the Hafod Estate, brimming with waterfalls in spate. For the next two days, with the help of bus and train, we walked the coast path to the south and north of Aberystwyth, enjoying the play of light over the sea and the rugged cliff scenery, then retiring to the customary tea-
These away weekends are a regular fixture in our programme, and planning is now well-
