More About Us
Redrope is a national hillwalking/outdoors group with lots of regional groups around the country. Our group (Warwickshire) is small, with about a dozen active members who are always involved, and the same number of people who come to some events, depending on time of year etc.
The age range is from 30 to about 60, and we’re a sociable and welcoming bunch of people (I joined a couple of years ago, and I found the group very friendly)
Activities vary – we go away for several weekends a year to North Wales or the Lake District, and organise at least one day walk a month. In the summer time we have evening walks in the local countryside. We have members in Coventry, Kenilworth, Leamington Spa, Warwick and Solihull – we often link up with members in the Birmingham area.
And there is a local mailing list which we use to announce upcoming walks – please get in touch if you’d like to be added.
