Local walkers - we need you
Are you looking to apply or learn new skills in high-level political lobbying? Do you care about local policies and plans that affect walkers? Would you like to take getting involved with the Ramblers to the next level?
The election of the new Metro Mayor is a great opportunity for us to make Greater Manchester even better for walking. Weʼve been campaigning and lobbying on walking issues for many years, but now we want to step up the pace.
Weʼre looking for new volunteers to join us to help build relationships with decision-makers, research and scrutinise local policies and promote Ramblersʼ messages and campaigns.
If this sounds like something youʼd be interested in, then please join us as a Local Organiser.
This new volunteer role is supported by staff in the Ramblers central office, in conjunction with GM&HP area. Training will be provided and expenses will be paid.

Guide to Walking on Open Access Land
Seventeen years ago today, the Countryside and Rights of Way Act was passed, giving rights of open access to more than a million hectares of countryside.
Open access land gives you the chance to step off the path and walk freely, explore wild, open landscapes and find your own way.
But do you know how to identify areas of open access? Do you know where you can and can't walk once you've found it?
Do you know what rights and responsibilities you have once you step off the path?
We know that some people don't feel confident in where they can and can't walk, and in knowing their rights and responsibilities while out walking.
To help, we've produced a free guide to open access, giving you everything you need to be able to head out and confidently explore the countryside.
