Marple Bridge & Mellor

Strolling Group

Our “Strolling Group” is for members who would like a gentle stroll rather than a longer walk for which we have a “Walking Group”. We arrange strolls of about 2 miles followed by a cuppa. These take place on the first Tuesday mornings in the month at 10.30am, unless otherwise stated.

If you would like to be put on our contact list pass your details to Convenors Geoff Fogg 0161 430 3517 or Shirley Hammond 0161 366 8223 / 07411 352 801.

Don’t forget your bus pass in case we need to ride back! Bring a drink over the summer months! Please wear appropriate footwear in case it is wet underfoot.

We have quite a large group of members who join us for a variety of strolls exploring different areas around our area and the surrounding countryside. We benefit from outside exercise as well as joining in enjoyable social occasions. We do need some of you to help to plan future strolls.

Please be aware that our strolls are arranged by members of the group. This tends to fall on the same few people! We desperately need some other strollers to arrange future strolls. Please speak to Shirley Hammond or Geoff Fogg. If you have a basic idea they will give you assistance to plan a stroll. Remember we only stroll 2-3 kilometres.
