...to Manchester Weekend Walkers, a Ramblers' walking group for Greater Manchester and its surrounding areas. If you like the sound of one of our walks and think you'd like to come along, we will be delighted to see you.

Ramblers' groups welcome all sorts of people: we particularly aim to suit those in the middle of their working lives but anyone can join us on a walk. Our aim is to organise walking and other activities for the weekend although, from late spring to early autumn, we like to arrange short evening walks after work too. We also meet mid-week for social activities, including cinema, theatre and visits to pubs and the odd restaurant.

We have a full walking programme coming up. If you would like to get involved, join us! We are looking for volunteers to help lead lots more walks, organise socials and perhaps even plan a weekend away! There is plenty of support available from others in the group.

Walks & Weekend Breaks
We usually arrange several walks every month, as well as regular reasonably-priced weekends away, where we stay in hostels and bunk-houses so we can visit the Peaks, Lakes, North Wales and further afield. In 2014, we organised well over 50 walks either on day-trips or as part of the five weekends we arranged.

Transport & Travel
Unlike some outdoor groups and clubs, we don't assume that everyone can drive and, being a walking group, we are very interested in sustainable travel. The vast majority of our events are planned around public transport, mainly trains but also trams and buses. Many of our weekends away also have been planned around accommodation that was easily accessible by train from Manchester. This option has proved extremely popular although, just as with the day walks, there's nothing to stop you driving and meeting us at the start if that suits your circumstances better.

Come & Try
We are gaining new members every month so if you do feel like trying us out for the first time, you will probably meet some people who have themselves only recently joined and who will hopefully be more than happy to tell you how friendly we are. You are welcome to join us for upto three walks to see if the group is for you before joining the Ramblers'. If you have any questions then please feel free to contact us on info@mwwalkers.org.uk

Hope to see you on a walk soon!

The start of autumn and it's been decidedly changeable! Definitely useful to pack are waterproofs.

Details for our New Year weekend will be ready soon, and in a blink of an eye, we'll reach our AGM. Can you come on our committee? All roles are available.

We now have over 150 members, a diverse group of people with a range of walking ability. If you want to join us, specify group code 'MR40' when you join the Ramblers, or transfer from another Ramblers' local group.
