Group name: Rossendale
This group is a part of North East Lancashire Area.
Our activities include:
Groups aimed at people in their 40s, Short and easy walks
Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. The Rossendale Group organises 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, with a view to joining our group when you have settled in.
Our group has around 150 members, and is regarded as one of the friendliest groups in the area. We walk around 10 miles every Wednesday and every first Sunday. We also run 6-ish mile local walks on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of most months. Finally, we have 2 hour local pub walks on Thursday evenings in the summer months, and on Saturday mornings in the rest of the year. These pub walks are very sociable occasions, and are ideal for new walkers and working people. About once a year we organise a major challenge walk such as the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, so we have walks for all abilities. We also organise a variety of social events, including a BBQ, Christmas meals, theatre trips, etc.
