26th July - NECG Summer walk and supper
Four of us, joined 17 other WI members in the NECG, on the NECG summer walk and supper on Thursday 26th July. We started off at ’The Miners Arms’ in Poynton, a circular walk heading towards the Marina on the Canal, then along the canal, and round back to the pub for a very enjoyable meal, mixing with fellow WI members of other groups.
16 July - Etherow Park
Four of us ventured out on Monday 16th July to Etherow Park. Luckily the weather was very kind and didn’t rain while we followed a 3 ½ mile walk round the park taking in Keg’s Pool. We saw very interesting birdlife, and a 14 ½ lb pike caught by some young fishermen!!
19 June - Vernon Park
2 groups met to walk the park and admire the flower beds and try the maze. Due to confusion over the number of carparks and therefore potential meeting points neither group realised the other was there until they met up at the end of the evening!
15 April - Higher Poynton
Sunday 15th April saw 7 of us meet at the Miner’s Arms, Higher Poynton and walk to Bollington for a very relaxed lunch at ‘The Vale’ and then back along the Middlewood Way. The weather was great and an enjoyable day was had by all.
5 February Higher Poynton
Our next walk is a 4 miles flat walk starting at the Miners Arms in Higher Poynton at 11.30 am on Sunday 5th February. We will walk to Bollington and have lunch in ‘The Vale’, then walk back along the Middlewood Way. If you just want to join us for lunch, we will be at ‘The Vale’ at 12.30 pm. CANCELLED - BAD WEATHER!
2 October 2011 Marple
Three members thoroughly enjoyed the 3 mile walk round the Roman lakes on 2nd October and of course the cup of coffee half way round in the refurbished cafe at the Roman Lakes. Our starting point was the car park in the Memorial Park in the centre of Marple. Please meet us there at 10.30 am. If you don’t fancy a walk, but would like to join us for coffee, we intend to be at the cafe by 11.30, so meet us there for a coffee and a chat.
