Cronton Health Walks

38 Wheatfield Road,,Cronton,Widnes,WA8 5BU

13 Dec 2011

00:00

Starting on Tuesday 20th September, Cronton Pathways are running the next series of walks around the area in conjunction with Knowsley Health Development Team. Meet at Holy Family Club on Hall Lane at 1.p.m. each week (except 29th October when we will start from the Unicorn pub car park). The walks will finish by 3.p.m. These Health Walks are designed to provide gentle exercise whilst you enjoy the pathways around Cronton in the company of others. Dates for the walks are as follows - Tuesday 20th & Saturday 24th September, Tuesday 4th, 11th, 18th & Saturday 29th October, Tuesday 1st, 8th, 15th & Saturday 26th November and Tuesday 6th & 13th December 2011. To join a walk, please wear comfortable footwear and clothing appropriate to the weather conditions. For more information contact Pete & Bess Smith on 0151 420 6326 (Cronton Pathways). These walks are going from strength to strength.

We now have 56 people signed up to walk with us and they do whatever the weather! The Christmas Bring & Share buffet on the 13th December was a great success with nearly 40 people joining together to share food, conversation and friendship. There will be a break until February 7th when the next programme of walks will be led by the full team of 6 trained walk leaders. This will enable us to provide both short and longer walks, meeting the varied needs of the group..

St. Briavels Beautifiers
I am the sole member of this group so far and would like to recruit other like-minded, local litter-killers. I've armed myself with a litter-picker-upper stick, bought online for a tenner, and I use recycled, plastic, supermarket bags for the collections. I walk around my village on litter-spotting missions every now and then with my fiance and our baby daughter. Good exercise and the lanes look much nicer. 'Hotspots' for litter are the bus shelter and the playing fields. Great feeling of satisfaction too. My aim is to keep our beautiful village 100% litter-free.

Our groups main aim is to improve the local environment so that it looks cleaner and more presentable as the litter in the area is spoiling the look of where we live and work. We would like to bring together the working community of the business park in order to clean things up a bit by keeping the area litter free. We feel that this would be a great opportunity to meet some of our neighbours, get some gentle exercise and achieve something really valuable at the same time.

Mashamshire Litter Busters
Mashamshire is an area of outstanding beauty. We are doing what we can to preserve it. We do litter collection along the lanes and footpaths in and around Masham - and we find loads of plastic. We are reducing the impact of micro-plastics on the diet of your children and grand-children! A Masham resident has kindly offered to pay for our group meeting coffees. Many thanks. As we go about Mashamshire we get many kind appreciations from folk that we meet.
