Walk Leader's report from Frodsham - Sunday 20th January [Leader Barry Smith]See Full Report
19 Ramblers including first timers Olga and Caroline met on a cold overcast day starting with a chorus of "Happy Birthday" to Anne.We the started a circular tour of Frodsham Hill to our morning break and chocolates at Crow Mere. The sun then appeared as we continued now with views, past Frodsham caves Beacon Hill, and the sadly closed Belmont Pub before climbing back up to Mersey View. This walk was slightly over the usual total ascent for a Sunday Morning walk, but taken at a steady pace, everyone managed O.K. and enjoyed the day.

Walk Leader's report from Congleton - Thursday 17th January [Leader Bill Minshall]See Full Report
17 ramblers plus Keith in the pub at the end. Thanks for supporting a late entry and we were rewarded with a stunning weather day with excellent views from Congleton Edge and the Cloud. Refreshment was taken at the Queens Head which had an excellent choice of ales plus good coffee and tea.

Walk Leader's report from Moore - Sunday 13th January [Leader Christine Martin]See Full Report
38 walkers plus Dennis set off on a chilly morning and completed a short circuit of the nature reserve before heading up the road and over the swing bridge. We then went over fields and Moore meadows and crossed Runcorn road. After crossing fields of horses and the railway we headed through daresbury boarding kennels and then over fields before reaching the Bridgewater canal. It was very windy on the canal and we were all glad we had out winter woollys on. We stayed on the canal towpath until we reached the village stores and then followed the road back to the nature reserve and our starting point. Thanks to the many who turned up and who hopefully enjoyed the walk.
