Group name: Trafford
This group is a part of Greater Manchester & High Peak Area.
Our activities include:
Path maintenance, Short and easy walks
Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.
We are a small friendly group. We have regular weekly walks on Thursdays, within less than about an hours drive in Lancashire, Cheshire and the Peak district, and shorter local strolls fortnightly on Saturdays.
In 2014 June Mabon and the Ramblers Trafford Group Path Maintenance Team won the Ramblers President’s Volunteer Award for “Protecting where we walk”! Along with volunteers who monitor local paths the group work with the council and have to be certified by them to work safely, particularly when using equipment such as strimmers or even on steps. This allows them to undertake routine path clearance but bigger jobs such as tree clearance is notified to the council and the response monitored.
