A right shower

We were very grateful for the homemade scones with jam and hot drinks when we arrived back at Ralph’s.

Helen was very insistent we came in. However, we were rather wet and had no wish to cause any mess, so we were happy under the porch way.

I did get a snap, which Helen worried may have made her look inhospitable but that definitely was not the case and we managed to finish off several scones between us.

Boundary walk

As is now traditional for May, the Walking Group met on the first Saturday to ‘beat the bounds’, i.e. walking the full boundary of both Parishes and reflecting at various points on the route.

We were also pleased to be joined by Heidi, Lisa and Natasha, who were in training for a 26-miler later in the year.

This year we took the opportunity to pause for silent prayer and reflection at particular areas and sites of significance.

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.
