RAB's Out & About Groups

Young At Heart

MembersOfTheYoungAtHeartEnjoyingA DayAtQuarrAbbeyOnTheIsleOfWight2015The Young at Heart group has been going since February 2009 and members have had great fun doing all sorts of activities. If you feel ‘Young At Heart’ and you think you can help yourself and others achieve something that maybe you think you cannot do because of sight loss then come and join in. The group meets fortnightly doing a range of activities and visits/day trips, in the past they have gone Horse Racing at Towcester, a Canal Boat trip, visited Gosport Naval Docks and done a Dembie's wine tour. To see what they are doing in the next few months go to Events diary

Ramblers Group

RAB ramblers walking up hill near Peppard common The ramblers meet on alternate Mondays, whatever the weather, for most of the year except two weeks around Christmas & Easter, there is also a break for most of August due to people being on holiday. They use the Association’s minibuses to go into the country for walks which go to different areas of the county & hence a variety of scenery. It also always includes a pub lunch which allows for time to catch up on the local chat. You can find the present rambling dates here

Out and About

A series of small outings (typically once a month) are arranged during the year. Information is published in the newsletter. The trips are more local they have gone or visited garden centres, museums (including the REME museum at Arborfield), arboretums, Millets Farm and the lambing sheds at Rushell’s farm.
