Mailing Lists

OU Walking Club has the following email lists.


walking-announce is the mailing list for official announcements about club activities, including important news, places available on club trips, corrections or changes to local walks, reminders of social events, etc. You will normally get one or two e-mails each week during term-time. Only club officials can authorise messages to be sent to the list. The e-mail addresses of all new members are automatically placed on the mailing list, so there is no need to subscribe if you intend to join the club in the next few days. Members and non-members are welcome to subscribe to the mailing list. To do this, send a blank message to walking-announce-subscribemaillist.ox.ac.uk and the server will add your address to the list. To unsubscribe, replace subscribe with unsubscribe in the email address.


walking-general is the mailing list for members to discuss walking-related issues, such as private walks or trips, or to buy or sell walking equipment. At the moment the list is only rarely used, but any member may subscribe to the mailing list, then send e-mails directly to walking-generalmaillist.ox.ac.uk which is the list's e-mail address. Please note that the content of e-mails sent to the mailing list is not regulated by OU Walking Club, as the list simply operates as a mechanism for members to discuss issues amongst themselves. OU Walking Club therefore takes no responsibility for the content of e-mails sent to the list and would like to emphasise that private walks and trips are not subject to the safety regulations of the club.

Subscribing is done in the same way as for walking-announce above, but with the address walking-general-subscribemaillist.ox.ac.uk and similarly for unsubscribe. If you have any problems subscribing or unsubscribing from either list, please contact webmasterouwc.org.

walking-drivers, walking-leaders and walking-localleaders

These are closed lists for drivers, trip leaders and organisers, and local walk leaders only. Contact secretaryouwc.org, trip.safetyouwc.org or archivistouwc.org respectively if you feel you should be on one of them.


This list is used by OUWC Alumni and by the club to communicate with alumni. See the alumni page for details.


This list is used in Michaelmas Term to communicate with Freshers and other people interested in the Walking Club.
