...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!
Winter's here. It's been changeable, with rain, mud, wind and now forecasts of snow, so definitely useful to pack are waterproofs and/or warm layers, and sturdy boots are also recommended.
Prestbury walk on January 13 includes an open forum, where in the pub after the walk all members can have their say on two topics - attracting more walk leaders, and publicising the group more widely.
We now have over 150 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.
Are you looking to apply or learn new skills in high-level political lobbying? Do you care about local policies and plans that affect walkers? Would you like to take getting involved with the Ramblers to the next level? The election of the new Metro Mayor is a great opportunity for us to make Greater Manchester even better for walking. We've been campaigning and lobbying on walking issues for many years, but now we want to step up the pace. We're looking for new volunteers to join us to help build relationships with decision-makers, research and scrutinise local policies and promote Ramblers' messages and campaigns.
