Prayer and reflection at Formby retreat

May Retreat

We’re returning to St Joseph’s Prayer Centre, Formby for our annual Retreat. This will be from Wednesday May 22nd to Saturday May 25th 2019.

The Prayer Centre is in a really lovely position, close to both the sandy beach and the National Trust Forest. The break is a mix of time spent together, plenty of personal space and trips out in the local area.

If you’ve not been before then go on, give it a go!

walking group

Sculpture trail and reservoirs

During December 2018 and January 2019 our Walmersley Road Walking Group were involved in two walks, both of which we have done before, but were ideal for the shorter days and winter months.

In December we took the Metrolink to Manchester Victoria station and begun our walk back along sections of the Irwell Sculpture Trail.

In January we explored the three reservoirs of Bolton: Jumbles, Wayoh and Turton & Entwistle.

The British Red Cross will be holding a free 2 hour training course on ‘Helping adults at greater risks of falls’. Particularly appropriate with the weather as it is!

This will be at St John’s Hall from 9.15am on Saturday 2nd February 2019. It’s a repeat of the course held in November.

Registration beforehand is essential as numbers are limited.
