Mid-Week Rambles

 
 


 

The mid-week group was formed 29 years ago and continues to be well supported by its’ regular members

All members of the club are welcome

There is a walk each week which alternates between Tuesdays and Thursdays. Members meet at the starting point of the walk, usually at 10. 30 a.m. The leader chooses the venue for the walk and details are circulated to members by email. Transport is by car, members ‘car sharing’ where possible. Sometimes local transport is used. Walks take place in the Lancashire Hills, South Lakes, Cheshire, Wirral, North Wales and closer to home particularly in winter. Walks are about 7 – 9 miles in length. A packed lunch is taken and members usually enjoy afternoon tea after the walk. The last walk before Christmas is shorter and is followed by a Christmas lunch.

The dates for the walks are coloured pink on the calendar. Details of walks will be on the web site nearer the time.

Further information can be obtained from the Weekday Ramble Chairman, Tel: 0151 426 3050.
