We think that a social side to the group goes hand-in-hand with our walks. In addition to the socials listed here, we usually visit a pub close to the the railway station at the end of the walk, and everybody is very welcome to come along. You may want to make a note of the return train times as people return home at different times. And once you're a member, you can come on one of our weekends which is a fantastic way to get to know us.

Thoughout the year, we have occasional socials, whether it's a cinema trip, meal or brewery visit. The photos below give a flavour of our past socials. If you think that the socials calendar is looking a little empty at the moment, please bear in mind that some of our socials are arranged at short notice and, as such, might only be listed on our members' page on Facebook.

If you'd like to organise a social for the Weekend Walkers, contact the Socials Coordinator at socials@mwwalkers.org.uk.

Wednesday 16th: T20 Blast Cricket

Organiser:

Martin

Description:

Lancashire Lightning take on Worcestershire Rapids in the T20 Blast at 18:30 on this day at Old Trafford Cricket Ground. T20 is the fast-moving, big-hitting version of the game, so it's not just for cricket purists. England Test players will not feature in this match, but there should be plenty of entertainment from the likes of England one-day wicketkeeper batsman Jos Buttler and England T20 batsman Liam Livingstone. Anyone not working that afternoon can also come along early and watch the Women's Super League match between Lancashire Thunder and Surrey Stars from 14:30, which will include a number of internationals from England and other leading countries. Lancashire Thunder's team includes 2017 World Cup winners Sarah Taylor and Danielle Hazell, alongside other recent England internationals Kate Cross and Sophie Ecclestone. The Surrey Stars team includes England World Cup winners Tammy Beaumont, Laura Marsh and Alex Hartley.

Booking/Cost:

Book your own tickets via https://www.eticketing.co.uk/lccc/details/event.aspx?itemref=3697. Please book for Stand A (£10), seating is unreserved within this stand, so no need to co-ordinate our bookings. The ticket includes admission to both matches. It's also £4 for under 18s if you want to bring your children.

Meeting Point:

Inside Stand A at the ground
