Thursday evening walks – the countdown begins

Thursday evening walks – the countdown begins

Our ‘Summer Strolls with Rossendale Ramblers’ programme is now fully set up, and the poster has been distributed to Walking for Health, the Hub, the Whitaker, Rawtenstall and Haslingden libraries, Rawtenstall Asda, David H’s barber and to some of the pubs.  Within the next few days all of the venues will have the poster, together with others places such as Crawshawbooth Community Centre.  Ramblers leaflets have also been given to the first 4 outlets above, in a rather smart and durable leaflet holder.

Hazel has told me that some of her Marl Pits friends have expressed interest, as has Sue about some Rossendale Golf Club ladies, and Basil has said that the Robin Hood walkers are keen to know more – so I have sent them a poster.  Some of this interest has been generated by my mention of the walks in a recent Free Press article, and I will continue to build on this.

This is all very encouraging, but PLEASE spread the word among people that you know, as these evening walks could ‘hit the spot’ for many people, not excluding some of our existing members, who have told me that they see them as a pleasant social activity on a nice summer evening.

    Super idea for people who are working.
    We are really looking forward to it.
    At present we try to attend some of the short Sunday walks so this will be ideal, Karen and Steven.
