Sankey Valley August 2013 

 

The August walk from Sankey Valley Park was ably led by Frieda Lyon.  This was her first walk as leader but hopefully not her last.

16 walkers enjoyed the walk past Carr Mill to Chadwick Green and back on a showery day.  The September walk from Appley Bridge will be led by Frank Atherton towards Dalton.

The support for the local walks has fallen this year for some reason from an average of about 24 to about 17. Please try to support these walks and encourage the leaders.  The October walk will be led by Tony Robinson and John Cockram from Red Rock. This will be their first walk as leaders, so they will appreciate your support. We do need new leaders and ideas for new walks.

At Sankey Valley there were one or two new faces who enjoyed the walk.  The Local Footpath Walks are an ideal way to introduce new members and to discover miles of footpaths around Wigan, which you might never have walked before.
