Latest Events: 14 May 2013 - After Work Walk

National Walking Month starts in May and now we have better weather, it’s a great chance to get outside.

The Wellbeing Team has organised a series of 3 guided walks for staff. These are an opportunity to get out in the company of others and explore a little.

The second is on Tuesday 14th May. Meet at the Marsden Grotto pub car park at 5.15pm.

Our route climbs up past the caravan park and round the old Marsden Quarry before returning to the car park. Bit more strenuous in terms of effort with some steep sections and patches of rough stony ground, good boots are essential. One for more experienced walkers perhaps, but does offer the possibility of a drink or even a meal at the Marsden Grotto at the end. Just over 2 miles and should take about 50 - 60 minutes to complete.

Booking essential. Tto reserve a place please contact the Wellbeing Team on 0191 5025050 or email david.george@stft.nhs.uk.
