Meet 12 noon at Ladybrook Public House, Fir Road, SK7 2NP. I have booked a table for 6 ref: IVC. (They had a 2 for 1 Sunday roast on display today for £12.99, also a seniors’ menu. They are open late so no worries eating after walk)
1.30pm walk starts from there heading into Bramhall park following the course of the Ladybrook, circling back to the hall and visitors centre (WCs & Cafe open till 4pm) then on through Carr Wood to rejoin the brook along its course back to start. 3.5 to 4 miles (Walk may be slightly curtailed depending on ground conditions).
Every Sunday throughout the year, Manchester IVC has a walk which starts off at 1.30 pm prompt, and is usually 4-5 miles …. something like that. We meet at a local pub or restaurant and the walk will either start from there or somewhere nearby. As well as the walk itself, there is the option to meet for a meal or a drink before the walk and/or after the walk for those who wish. You will be able to see from the location and the walk description whether or not the walk is going to be suitable for you – but the idea is that all on the walk will benefit from enjoyable exercise and a good social.
Please make sure you are wearing appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather and terrain – the walk leader will always have the right to decide on the day if someone is not appropriately dressed. The walk leaders are all members of the club and are volunteers.
There are car share options available, so if you are stuck for a lift, just add a note here and we’ll do our level best to help.
There are usually between 10 to 20 walkers dependent on the weather and location – so by all means come along and join in. It’s a great gateway to the rest of the club, you can talk to new and established members and find out about the full range of events we have on in Manchester every month.
The walks are very popular, so please RSVP if you plan to attend and we’ll make sure you’re made to feel very welcome !
