Marnhull Ramblers and Shorts are a social walking groups who meet twice a month for a circular walk and pub lunch.  The two walks are:

A shorter walk of around 4 km on the second Thursday of the month, generally meeting at 10.45 am for an 11 am start.  The walks start is within a 20 minute or so driving distance of Marnhull.  Ann and John Dowsett run this group and they are called the Marnhull Shorts.

A longer walk of around 8 – 9 km on the last Thursday of the month, generally meeting at 9.30 am for a 10 am start.  These walks are usually within a 40 minute drive of Marnhull.  Elaine Spencer-White runs this group known as the Marnhull Ramblers.

We maintain an email distribution list which is common for both walks, so everyone gets to know about all the walking opportunities.  The details of the walks are emailed just before the start of each month and posters are put up at the village stores in Marnhull and the Recreation Ground notice board for those without email.
