Strollers

Convenor: Denise Dickens
To contact Denise, please email salfordu3a@gmail.com marking the subject line of your email ‘FAO: Denise Dickens’.

Strollers enjoy a gentle walk of up to an hour on good footpaths, alternate Saturday mornings, starting at 10.30. We finish at a café/pub for refreshments, and to decide where our next stroll will start and who will lead. All walks are within the Salford borough, starting from locations that can be reached easily by public transport.

We’re a friendly, chatty group and welcome new members.
