We think that a social side to the group goes hand-in-hand with our walks. All socials, except for the New Members' socials, are for members. 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.
