Social Activities and Holidays


At various times of the year holidays may be organised. These can be from a weekend to a couple of weeks. In recent times, holidays for example have included those in the Lakes, North Wales and further afield to Nerja in Spain. (The 'core' two weeks for the club holiday in Nerja in 2020 will be from 13th February.)

The availability of these holidays is advertised in the Clubroom and on the coaches. Members make their own arrangements for Nerja, for other bookings a deposit secures a place on a first-come first-served basis.

HF Holidays also provide walking holidays and activity breaks across the UK, Europe and Worldwide. They have been providing walking holidays since 1913. They are owned by their members and have a strong relationship with the Ramblers. HF Holidays also contribute a sum of money to our group when holidays are booked with them - again, only if you quote the name of Wirral Ramblers Group when you book. Their website is www.hfholidays.co.uk

Social Programme

At our Club Night we have a varied social programme with guest speakers and other items of interest to members, held on two Thursday evenings a month at our clubroom from 7.45pm.

The latest Social Programme is available here.

We meet at:

The RAFA Club (Roundel Club)
Alton House
17 Shrewsbury Road
Oxton, Wirral
CH43 1UU

The Club is on the corner of Shrewsbury Road and Alton Road, with the entrance off Alton Road.

An entry charge of £2 is made at the Clubroom to meet the cost of room hire, bar staff and guest speaker. Tea and biscuits are provided and a bar is available. Visitors are welcome for two evenings after which they are asked to join the Ramblers.

Ramblers Holidays

A 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. Our group can benefit directly if you book a holiday with Ramblers Worldwide Holidays. We will 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 – but only if you quote the name of Wirral Ramblers Group when you book. Currently, we use funds raised this way to support a stiles removal programme.

Ramblers Worldwide Holidays operate group walking holidays in the UK and all around the world. Each holiday is accompanied by a qualified walks leader, so you can leave all the organising to them and just enjoy meeting like-minded people and some fantastic walking. Holidays are graded in terms of difficulty, and there is a full range from sightseeing right up to hut-to-hut mountain treks. You can find their website at www.ramblersholidays.co.uk or give them a call on 01707 331133 for more details, or to order a brochure.
