Short Walks

Group photo 2017

Convenors: Florence McCarthy, 0161 789 7931 – email: florence_mccarthy@hotmail.com and Marlene Walker, 0161 727 8583

Venue and Time: We meet on alternate Mondays at St Mark’s Church, Worsley, and leave promptly at 1pm.

Please see the Walks Programme below. This is a popular group sometimes at capacity for walking, so new members please contact Florence first.

The walks are in interesting areas and cover 3-4 miles usually on good paths and with some short moderate uphill climbs, nothing that a reasonably fit person couldn’t manage.

We all take our time – no rush. Transport to the start of the walks relies on informal car sharing and expenses also being shared, a formula for which exists.

Please contact Florence for further information.
