Welcome

We are a thriving club with over 350 members.  From the small beginnings we now have up to 5 graded walks each Thursday and 4 different groups each Sunday.

We are a very friendly club and welcome new members of all ages.

We are most fortunate to have willing leaders for every walk in our published programme, with a Committee who plan social events, organise holidays and publish a newsletter, “Footprint”, 3 times a year.

Marple Carnival Saturday 15th June 2024

It was great to see many of our members as well as potential members visiting our stall at the Marple Carnival in 2023.  We have booked a stall for the Carnival this year on Saturday 15th June.  Please come and visit us and talk to us about the range of walks that we have and about our wonderful UK and overseas holidays.  We look forward to seeing you there.

 

Walk Information:
Our printed walk programme for July to October is currently being put together.  It will be posted to members, along with the latest Footprint magazine around the middle of June.

50 Years of Memorable Walks – 2020

In our 50th Anniversary Year of 2017, we produced a book of memorable and favourite walks written by members of all walking groups. It was a sell out and overall profits enabled us to make a generous donation to our local Mountain Rescue Teams.

In response to continuing demand for more copies, we have now printed a limited re-run to give to recent and future new members, for existing members to obtain extra copies for friends and families, and for 3 shops to sell them to non-members. The shops couldn’t get enough as customers liked a booklet that included local or easily reached walks.

Claude Prime, our Membership Secretary will circulate complimentary copies to all who have joined since 2017 and early 2018, and to any future new members.

Additional copies can be purchased in Marple Bookshop, 70 Stockport Rd, Marple; and in Simply Books, 228, Moss Lane, Bramhall.
