The next Programme in Nantwich begins in November 2021. Have a look back at this summer’s walking in Nantwich in the hot weather!!!
The Canal and River Trust’s rolling series of guided walks are for over 55s who would like to meet in a safe environment and make new friends, learn about the local history and wildlife on our canal, and have fun on a gentle walk. Please register your interest for the NEXT PROGRAMME BEGINNING IN NOVEMBER via this online form.
Maddy from the Canal and River Trust says “All of our programmes are run by our friendly staff and volunteers, many of whom have experience of working by the waterways or are boaters themselves, so they are very passionate about what they do. We are trained to lead group walking activities in small groups, and can include other activities as part of the programme.”
