Swansea Ramblers Walk


Chester with Fireworks

11th November 2014

Leader: Clive Scott




Swansea Ramblers had a group weekend away social in the historic city of Chester.  We had some pleasat walking and lovely evening meals socialising and having fun.  We even enjoyed the firework display at Chester Racecourse in the evening.  There was a little rain to start but it soon cleared into a lovely day.  If you'd like to try a walk then do come along and find out what all this Swansea Walking in the great outdoors is all about.  It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.  If you get the bug and want to walk or stroll regularly then you can also become a member.  Just ask us about the walks and social events we do when you join us for a Swansea Walk.
