Parbold Ramblers

Parbold Ramblers was formed in 1998 by a group of like-minded people who fancied a bit of exercise on a regular basis, were fond of the open air and nice scenery. 

Walks are organised on the 1st Sunday of each month and are within 1½ hours drive from Parbold village.  In winter months when the days are shorter we sometimes walk nearer to home.  We meet at the Car Park behind the shops in Parbold to share cars, usually at 9.a.m prompt. (A donation towards petrol costs for the car driver is appreciated)  Members are advised to have suitable footwear i.e. walking boots, and to bring waterproofs, coffee and lunch.  Walking poles can also be useful.

The walks are over a variety of terrains and areas and are usually no more than 8 miles long.  Hills and dales, canal towpaths, green lanes and wooded areas can be expected but no fell walking is usually attempted.  If there is a local hostelry or teashop at the end of the walk, then that is usually included for those who wish.  We get together once a month in the upstairs room of the Red Lion Pub, Newburgh starting at 8.p.m. to discuss the previous walk, the next planned walk, and any other issues that crop up.  This is on the Wednesday, which falls 10 days before the 1st Sunday of the new month.

We are a lively and friendly group and social events are planned throughout the year. There is always a Christmas meal at a local pub or restaurant, and for the last few years we have ventured out in the summer as well. We try to plan a weekend away each year and have been to Shropshire, Durham, Bangor, Ambleside and the Peak District.  This year we are going to Mold in September. 

Also current annual subscription has been increased to £16 renewable annually at the AGM in May.
