Get Ready to Ramble - Ramblers back Active Wirral campaign with free walking event

WIRRAL Ramblers are getting behind the Council’s latest 'Active Wirral' campaign to encourage local people to take more exercise.

The Ramblers have organised a walk that will take place, on Monday, 3 October 2016, with a specially designed route accessible to all. The free event will begin at the Spital Train Station Car Park, at 11am, and is expected to take approximately 1 ˝ hours.

Wirral Ramblers are the largest walking group in the region with around 800 members, and lead dozens of walking events every year across the North West, Yorkshire, the Peak District and Wales.

Cllr Ann McLachlan, Cabinet Member for Transformation, Leisure and Culture said:- "Our Pledges make it clear we are fully committed to supporting and encouraging a healthier Wirral. But we also want to make that fun for people to participate in and with this month’s theme for our Active Wirral campaign being ‘Let’s Walk’ we are excited to have Wirral Ramblers involved. The Ramblers have been really supportive of our plan to help people in Wirral take that first step towards getting active and adopting a healthier lifestyle. We hope that some of those who attend this walk will think about joining the Ramblers and making a lasting, positive difference to their health."

Gordon Clarke, Chairman of Wirral Ramblers says:- "Wirral Ramblers are very happy to join with Active Wirral in offering the opportunity to take part in a pleasant late morning/early afternoon local walk. The walk will be at an easy pace and designed to introduce people to the pleasure of walking and to increased fitness. So, take those first footsteps to a healthier outlook by taking part in the 1st Wirral Ramblers and Active Wirral health walk."

Walkers are asked to wear sturdy footwear and dress appropriately for the weather. Wirral Ramblers currently organise regular walks on Wednesdays and Sundays and host regular social events at the RAFA Club, located on Alton Road, Oxton, Merseyside.
