...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.

Hope to see you on a walk soon!
Welcome to 2016! Don't forget that it can get cold on the hills, so always be prepared and bring your waterproofs and other sensible walking equipment.
We now have over 100 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.
Dr. Penny Priest, clinical psychologist, is of the opinion that the slow rhythm of walking takes one back to the warm feeling of being rocked as a baby, and that's one reason that walking good for your mental health (J Health Psychol. 2007 Jan, 12(1):36-52).
