RAMBLE 18th August 2013


Hello All, it’s that time of year again!

As always with Deborah and I the emphasis is on the social side of the ramble rather than the macho slog of it.
This is not one for those wanting an iron man challenge, but if you do want nice views, nice company, a pub lunch and homemade cream teas and cakes for afters, than this IS for you!

Here’s the info-

The Date– Sunday August 18th

  1. Well done to you and Deborah. Haven’t been on one before with the club. Really looking forward to it and glad to hear there will be ‘refreshments’ available! 🙂


    1. Hi Andy
      Great to have you along!
      It’s prime butterfly spotting country as well as Battle of Britain central (there’s a museum on that subject in the village), so there’s plenty to see (as well as eat!)

  2. Hope the day went well for you all in the end. So sorry that Marian and I had to drop out so soon after starting.

    1. Hello Andy and Marian,
      at least you got into the group photos, so as far as anyone knows you did complete the distance!
      It can be our secret!

      1. Yes, and it had better stay that way. We are not going to succumb to any blackmail attempts!

  3. Andy and Marian, sorry that you had probs. – as did most of us in varying degrees. Happy social chats, good pub food and excellent cream teas – well done Deborah and Simon for getting 14 of us to walk through our local (hilly) but beautiful countryside.

  4. Great day out in the sunshine with lovely views,great company, pub lunch and cream tea. I am sure there were more uphill bits coming back than going, or did it just feel like it. Thank you to Deborah & Simon for organising it all and Simon for carrying my bag up the steep bits.

    1. Hi All
      Many thanks to you all for keeping Deborah and I company.
      We have lots of snaps so stay tuned for the
      ramble de-brief, coming to the OVFM website soon.

  5. A ‘gentle stroll’, a ‘hill’, just 5 miles… this was the promise! The reality was rather different, wasn’t it Simon and Deborah? Our lawyers will be in touch about your misleading claims on this Tenko style route-march that would have had Bear Grylls crying for mercy. 14 people and a dog started yet only 10 people finished. Even the poor dog couldn’t keep up the gruelling, exhausting pace and had to abandon his attempt half-way round.

    However, you did try to compensate with a break for lunch and a cream tea so, not being ones to bear a grudge, we won’t mention the matter again…at least not until the court case.

    1. Hi Mike and Jo
      I thought we agreed never to speak of our fallen comrades. I counted them out and miscounted them back in!

      As for poor little Teddy…well I can catergorically say that no lovely little doggies suffered during the course of the ramble, as for Sylvia and Brian though…well that’s another matter!
      Those hills do seem steeper than I remember them!

      Anyway we’re now booking for next years OVFM Iron Man Challenge, I mean ramble…any takers?
