PEOPLE in the South-West who want to get out and about and enjoy the great outdoors this winter are invited to join in the Ramblers' Festival of Winter Walks.

Family, friends and avid walkers have stepped out in snow, sleet, rain and under clear winter skies as part of the annual festival for more than 25 years.

This year the Ramblers are once again providing free wintery walks in the area led by volunteers from December 21 to January 5 2014 for everyone to enjoy.
