Walks

Thanks to a small grant from the CEC Public Health participatory budgeting scheme we have set up a programme called Wilmslow Walks, aiming to get more people out going for walks. Walking is good for our health and wellbeing, gives an opportunity for exercise and is known to improve our mental health. Walks also help raise awareness of the wonderful landscape on our doorstep, and the importance of looking after our environment. We have so far had 3 walks with Brownie groups on Lindow Moss, and a walk on the Mobberley side of Lindow Moss. We have a walk planned for the Time Out group in July, a walk with the Fulshaw WI in September, and a Tree Walk in Wilmslow in September. All details of walks open to the public are on our diary page. If you can think of a group who would like a walk, please let us know; we are keen to expand our repertoire to include walks for people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to get out for a walk.

Rainbow and Brownie Walks Summer 2017

Over the summer we have taken four groups of Rainbows and Brownies (over 100 children in all) on a Lindow Moss walk. They have seen the Moss rooms, handled peat, thought about what our ancestors used it for, seen the train tracks (the most exciting bit generally!), where the Riflemen used to practice, and out on to the Moss to look at the flora and fauna and have a run around. It’s been immensely gratifying to see them (and their parents and leaders!) learn so much about the Moss and all the interesting things in it. If you know of groups of children who would enjoy a walk, please let us know. We can tailor the walk to your needs, generally about an hour and a half including multiple stops at areas of interest, and some great stories to share. Thanks to Garry, Jean, Helen, Jane, Anthony, Pippa and Denise for leading the walks, and John for being the inspiration.
