Aims of the Club:
We aim to provide a wide and varied programme of walks throughout the year, designed to appeal to walkers of all abilities and different levels of fitness.
Bury HF consists of FOUR walking groups. Members are entitled to walk with any, and all, of the groups below:
The walk secretary is Trevor Lunness (07960 077230)
Some of these walks are classed as ‘difficult’ and are usually between 10 miles and 15miles in length
or may include significant ascent.
The walk secretary is Mike Bell (0161 764 6848)
The group meets at Crostons Retail Park, to leave at 10.00. The walks are approximately 8 miles in length.
A shorter walk (5 - 6 miles) over easier terrain also runs alongside the standard walk on the
2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month from the same starting point - B&M, Crostons Retail Park, 10.00.
The walk secretary is Christine Wellings (01204 778757)
The group meet at Tenters Street (Law Courts) car park leaving promptly at 13.00. The programme offers an amble of approximately 3–4 miles once a month and a walk of approx 6 miles three times each month. You might like to consider taking a snack and a drink.
The walk secretary is Diane Goldberg (01204 88270)
The group meets at Belle Vue Terrace car park, at 10.00. Walks are approximately 8 miles in length.
As a club, we encourage members to car share. An appropriate contribution towards fuel costs should be agreed between the driver and the passenger. The currently suggested amount is 20p per mile.
Suitable clothing and footwear is essential for all of our walks. You are advised to take a packed lunch (except Saturday) and a drink with you.
The meeting times in Bury (at Crostons Retail Park, Tenters Street and Belle Vue Terrace) apply to the Thursday, Saturday and Sunday groups. The two Tuesday groups meet at the start of the walk.
Dogs are not permitted on any of our walks.
The annual subscription is £5. You would be most welcome to come along on two or three walks, after which, should you decide to join us, we would expect you to pay the subscription.
Annual subscriptions are due following the AGM, which is held in February.
Safety on Walks:
A public liability policy, held by HF Holidays, to which our club is affiliated, covers the club. The policy does not cover personal accidents which may occur on walks.
Members participate on any club walk entirely at their own risk. The club and the leaders cannot be held responsible for loss or damage to personal property or for any injury, however caused.
Walkers should not walk ahead of the walk leader, unless this has been agreed.
Please use the CONTACT FORM to get in touch if you would like any further general information about the club or would like to join. If you would like to know more about a particular Walking Group or walk from the programme, please contact the appropriate GROUP SECRETARY.
