FESTIVAL OF WALKS
As part of the Ramblers "Festival of Walks", Bolton Ramblers are providing 4 walks. On Boxing Day there is a 3-mile walk that includes a gentle climb. On Sunday the 29th December its Hamlets Galore! And Thursday January 2nd two walks starting from the Horwich Leisure Centre one 3 to 4 miles and a slightly longer walk of around 5 miles. Come and join us. You could have a very pleasant surprise and discover bits of Horwich you never knew existed. Sturdy footwear (preferably boots) essential. For further information see the Local Footpaths Walks page on this website.
Would you be willing to join a team of Ramblers to undertake minor footpath clearance (such as brambles and nettles round stiles or across a path)? Bolton Council's path maintenance budget is severely over-stretched, but a couple of hours' work by small teams of Ramblers two or three times each summer could make a big difference to everyone's enjoyment of our local countryside. If you would be interested in joining a scheme, please email your contact details to Footpath Secretary Jackie Roberts on email@example.com
