What we're about

This Meetup Group aims to publicise the walks and activities of the Ramblers Group of the same name. We are people who like getting out of town for a day in the country at the end of a long working week.

All Manchester Weekend Walkers (http://www.mwwalkers.org.uk/walks) walks, including the one a month we promote on Meetup, are organised by volunteers for the benefit of paid-up members of the Ramblers Association, the national walking charity. If you are interested in joining you can try up to 2 Ramblers walks before paying your membership. If you have been on 2 trial walks and want to come on any more then just join here first: Join the Ramblers (Manchester Weekend Walkers) (https://www.ramblers.org.uk/get-involved/become-a-member/join-us.aspx?group=MR40&area=MR)

N.B. If you are in the Ramblers already there is no need to RSVP as you can just turn up in the normal way.

We are open to all but particularly aim our walks at those of us in the 40-plus age group, those who may not feel confident walking by themselves and those who would like some company on the walk or in the pub afterwards to make the day even better.

Our group was set up in January 2013 and since going on to Meetup in February 2014 we've had lots of lovely new people find us and then join up properly so they can take a full part in all our activities. Aside from not paying any kind of fee to walk, Ramblers members don't have any limit to how many walks they can do, they can go out walking with any Ramblers Group anywhere in the country, they don't have to RSVP and they can come to all our social events and our weekends away.

Joining the Ramblers is also just a great thing to do if you enjoy walking and want to help keep our paths and hills open to all. It costs around £34 or less depending on your circumstances and brings many other benefits and discounts in addition to becoming part of our growing, friendly group! It’s easy to sign up online: http://mwwalkers.org.... (http://mwwalkers.org.uk/newmembers/

If you have any questions do send us a message, or come to a walk.

Hope to see you soon!
