Stuart Meakin, one of the founding members, gave a history of the group, which currently has 167 members.

Graham Kinch, group chairman, said: “Sheringham Ramblers are looking forward to the coming years and leading walks over our wonderful local countryside and we welcome new walkers."  

The group has fortnightly walks within a 10-mile radius with shorter walks of four to six miles on Wednesdays and longer walks on Sundays of five to ten miles. 

Walkers are welcome to enjoy three walks before joining The Ramblers.
