Our next walk is 15th October . We will be meeting at Maghull Station at 10.50. We had hoped to get the train to West Kirby, however, there are engineering works that day so we will have to make the best of what is on our door step this month and do West Kirby next month. If you have a bus pass remember to bring it with you. We may get the local bus to Lydiate and walk around that area. You will need to wear walking shoes at this time of the year.

The Strollers had hoped to do a walk around Freshfield last Sunday, but, at the very last minute had to change this due to repair work taking place on the unmanned crossing near Freshfield. As we were booked in at the Pinewoods pub for lunch it was decided by the group to walk from Hightown to Freshfield. It was a lovey day and the group, in the end, walked 7 miles. Nine walkers took part, all agreed it had been a good walk which ended with an excellent lunch at the Pinewoods pub. We will do the walk we had planned to do in September and have booked in at the Pinewoods pub again. Please note for the August walk we will meet at 10.20 not 10.50am at Maghull Station.
