Welcome to the Plym Ramblers Social Events 

 

​Below you will find the events we organise each year.

More information will appear close to the date of an event.

All events have a charge to cover our costs.

Enjoy!!

 

 

JANUARY

GAMES EVENING

A great evening activity which, fortunately, takes place indoors. There are a dozen or more table games of skill to have a go at. Nothing complicated but can be slightly competitive. Using dexterity, a good eye and a sense of humour.

 

FEBRUARY

SKITTLES EVENING

This is a good participation meeting where you enjoy the company of others whilst trying to bowl wooden balls to hit wooden skittles. The evening includes a basket meal at the Westward Inn in Lee Mill.

 

MARCH

QUIZ NIGHT

A very popular quiz night on general knowledge with some local questions. Organised by Laurence and Blodwen with their special audio visual show. Everyone gathers in teams and the winners at the end get a box of smarties (or the equivalent). Those attending will bring a pot luck supper.

 

MAY

SPRING HOLIDAYS

These takes place in areas beyond our normal walks range. The trip usually lasts 4 days with a stay in a hotel for 3 nights. Daily walks are provided by Plym Ramblers' leaders.  

 

JUNE

ANNUAL TREASURE

This ever popular treasure hunt is on foot and takes place at various venues within 20 miles of Plymouth. The hunt lasts about 2 to 3 hours and can be done by anyone over 10 years. At the end of each hunt the group meets in a local pub and over lunch we announce the winners.  
 

 

JULY

ANNUAL BARBECUE

This is an afternoon activity starting with a walk and concluding with a well-earned barbecue. The walk starts at 2pm and the barbecue at 5pm. This event always takes place by a village hall in various locations so that when we return from the walk we can use the hall facilities. If the weather is unsuitable for outside we can move into the hall.

This year, the BBQ will take place at the Jubilee Memorial Hall in Down Thomas with a 5-mile walk  around the area. 

 

JULY/AUGUST

SPECIAL DAY OUT

This can be a trip to do something a bit different but with a walk option. It can include a train or canal trip. 

 

OCTOBER

AUTUMN RESIDENTIAL HOLIDAY

This year it's a trip to St Ives from the 22nd to the 25th October, with walks every day and visits to local events.

The balance for this holiday must be paid. Look out for the details when we have them from HF.

Next year we propose to holiday at Abingworth in the South Downs for gentle guided walks for 4 nights from Sept 22nd to Sept 25th 2025

The group cost (we must be more than 10) is £610 per person fully inclusive of all meals.
The walks range from 3 to 8 miles. The clue is in the GENTLE guided walks.
 

 

DECEMBER

CHRISTMAS WALK AND LUNCH

This annual event brings everyone together to enjoy a morning walk followed by lunch in a local pub.
