Venue and day/time: Previously this year we have been meeting by Zoom on the 4th Thursday of the month 11-12noon, but more recently have been gathering at RHS Bridgewater.

Prior to the pandemic restrictions, we met on the second Tuesday of the month. The normal meeting time was 10.30am but this varied depending on where the group was visiting. The group explores Greater Manchester by bus/metro/local train using our concessionary passes although any members who have not yet received their pass are also welcome.

For information, the programme for 2020 is shown below. Further details re times etc. are emailed to members a couple of weeks beforehand. From March onwards the programme was suspended in line with coronavirus guidelines.
