Deaf Rambling 2020

What

We have set up 6 different routes in 2020. It is FREE for you to join but you must register to reserve a place. The online form is at the bottom of this page and it will only take you less than 2 minutes to complete. Please let us know if you need help with the form by sending us a 'Contact Us' form.

Why

Rambling is a great way to keep you fit and healthy. It is also a good opportunity for the Deaf community to get together and socialise which helps with your mental health and well-being. You will get to find out more about what DeafCOG does for the Deaf community and you may wish to volunteer with us on various events and activities like Our Space, Cafe Social, etc,.

Where are the Routes

See below  - we have 6 routes in different parts of East Sussex including Brighton & Hove and Kent. Hopefully this will make it fairer for Deaf people to be able to join one or more routes without having to travel far.

 

COVID-19 Update

On 8 September 2020 the UK government announced that social gatherings of more than six people will be banned in England from Monday, 14 September 2020. Although there are several exemptions like community gatherings e.g. which are yet to be published, we have decided to cancel the 26 September 2020 ramble as it is our priority to protect the health and well-being of the Deaf community.
