What we're about
If you enjoy walking your dog (on or off lead) and fancy trying some new places and meeting some new people along the way, then this group is for you!
Walks will be organised in and around Greater Manchester, so if you live in Oldham, Bury, Rochdale or Manchester (or anywhere!) there should be a meet up event to suit you. There will be a range of walks usually lasting between 1 and 3 hours and where possible a pit stop half way or at the end! Walks are generally easy but some will have steep or muddy paths, but you don't need to be a rambler so don't worry!
Some places we've visited so far include Hollingworth Lake (Rochdale), Daisy Nook (Oldham), Tandle Hills (Oldham) and Burrs Wood Park (Bury). All dogs are welcome, my Jack Russell is very friendly so would love to meet some new friends!
Please feel free to suggest somewhere to visit if you like.
This group is a great way to socialise your dog and yourself whilst enjoying the countryside as well as sharing tips, advice and your own experiences of being a dog owner.
Walks will be at weekends and there'll be at least one a month. Please note: There is a membership fee of £2 per year, this covers Meetup website fees. Any amount exceeding the fee will be donated to the guide dogs charity. Membership fee is only payable at the first event you attend, not at joining stage.
Please note that if you don't have a dog but sign up to a walk I will give preference to members with dogs if the event is full, sorry!
To be part of the group I have a few very simple rules, I want the group to be enjoyable for everyone and so here are the rules:
1. Please keep your RSVP updated, often there's a waiting list so if you can't make it please let someone else attend
2. If you're running late please please let me know. I contact members before a meetup and provide my mobile number or you can use the Meetup page to comment. I'd hate to set off on a walk and leave someone behind!
3. Please don't use the group page to organise outside events, whether these are for another Meetup or private events. My group is accessible to all members and I'd like it to stay that way. By all means please let me know if you want to arrange your own walk using the group or a specific place or date
thank you and I hope you enjoy Walkies In The Parks !
