Long Walks

Lockdown easing

As the country cautiously moves forward and pandemic restrictions are eased, many of our groups will turn their attention to how and when our members can safely resume face-to-face meetings.

The following must be borne in mind:

Any dates for face-to-face meetings, events and trips are provisional and based on our understanding of the UK Government’s plan to gradually ease pandemic restrictions. As such they are subject to change. Please ensure you have the latest information from your convenor or organiser.

Any member who is feeling ill or displaying COVID-19 symptoms must NOT participate.

Convenors: Hazel Walker and Joy Strangeways

To contact Hazel and Joy, please email salfordu3a@gmail.com marking the subject line of your email ‘FAO: name/job title’

Venue and day/time: We meet on alternate Mondays at St Mark’s Church Car Park, Worsley, for a 10am departure.

The programme planned for 2020 can be found via the link below; the programme for 2021 will be posted as soon as regulations allow. These are full day walks led by volunteers. 

Transport to the start of the walks relies on informal car sharing and expenses also being shared, a formula for which exists. The walks are full days and you are required to bring a packed lunch. Could new members please contact the convenor before joining so we have an idea on numbers.

These walks are generally about 5-7 miles (or a little shorter when daylight is limited) and are relatively gentle and predominantly on flat ground involving little ascent. We are generally back in Worsley by four o’clock.

We would wish to encourage as many people as possible to lead walks.

Please contact the Convenors in order to answer any query.
