Let’s Fight for the Right to Roam

December 12, 2013

Do you remember the old days in the rambling movement?

Fighting for the Right to Roam.Leyburn 017

Forbidden Britain Days to highlight the worst areas where access is denied.

But now it has all gone quiet.

Let’s be frank. The CRoW Act was better than nothing, but a mere – very mere – bite of the cherry.

Why can’t the people of England, Wales and Northern Ireland have the same rights of access as the people of Scotland?

It was pleasing to see Chris Maude’s letter in the last issue of the Rambler’s Association Walk calling for access. Pleasing to see the recent star letter in that magazine echoing that sentiment.

But do the rambling establishment intend to take the hint?

Watch this space!

Because some of us intend to put full countryside access back to the top of the agenda.

    You’re the inspiration for this potential campaign, John. Let’s all keep the momentum going. It only remains to agree the best way to do so.

    Please feel free to suggest campaign ideas.

      Harnessing the power of social networks, plus e-petitions are time-effective media. We can all play a part – emailing contacts; links to a petition on blogs/websites, etc. It might be useful to give RA an opportunity to get involved from the off, because one way or the other, their name will be in the frame once this lobbying campaign heads their way.
