is an invitation to you or your business to become a member of the Ross-on-Wye
Walkers are Welcome Group. You may have seen articles in the Ross Gazette in recent
months covering the setting up of our organisation. Briefly, the Group was formed in February 2009
with the aim of obtaining and maintaining Walkers are Welcome accreditation for
Ross. This is a national scheme that
enables towns and villages to promote themselves as walking destinations for
both day trips and longer holidays. The
Group is working with local councils, the Tourist Information Centre, the
Public Rights of Way Department and various local groups and organisations. We achieved accreditation. We plan to hold a two day walking festival as
an official launch on October 3rd and 4th.
To ensure success with our endeavours we need funds. We appreciate that in the current economic climate budgets everywhere are under pressure but any assistance you can give will enable us to launch and promote Walkers are Welcome with the greatest impact. We have secured a grant of £750 from Ross Town Council and seek to obtain a matching amount from sponsorship and donations. The money raised will be used to print leaflets and maps to promote the launch and maintain the visibility of Ross-on-Wye as a Walkers Are Welcome town in the future. Other specific advertising and sponsorship opportunities will be available as we finalise our plans for the new leaflets and maps.
of the Group entitles you to attend any Committee meetings and vote at the
Annual General Meeting. The first AGM will be held in April 2010 when a full
review of activities and detailed accounts will be presented to the members. If you wish to become a member of the

The benefit of supporting this initiative is to promote Ross-on-Wye as an excellent place to visit for a walking holiday. In addition our Patrons will feature in any promotional leaflet and on our website. Patrons can display the Walkers Are Wecome Logo.
