New President

The new President of the North Wales Area of Ramblers Cymru is Ruth Hussey.

Dr Ruth Hussey CB, OBE was formerly the Chief Medical Officer for Wales and retired in early 2016. Ruth was born and brought up in North Wales and is a member of the Conwy Valley Group.

Ruth is a keen walker and recognises the health benefits of walking. When promoting the new guide book “24 walks in the Clwydian Hills and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”, she said

"Walking is important for our health and wellbeing. Even better when you walk in our beautiful countryside. This easy to use book will inspire you to get going or try new walks in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Why not give your wellbeing a boost by trying these routes?"

We are all really pleased that Dr Hussey, following her retirement as Chief Medical Officer for Wales, has agreed to become President of our Area. Dr Hussey’s support recognises the importance of walking to all of our health. The Ramblers want to inspire everyone to give walking a try whether it’s your local park, a walk in the Clwydian Hills or a Ramblers led walk. Walking is fun, it’s free and ‘just what the doctor ordered’.
