Brindle Cuckoo Walks 2019

Sat, 27 April 2019

09:00 – 16:00

 The Brindle Cuckoo Walks – Step out to take in views of local farms, streams, hills and woodlands.

Held in April each year, the Brindle Cuckoo Walks encourage walkers to enjoy the countryside around Brindle Village by joining us on our family-friendly day. Walks of different lengths are offered and each is led by an experienced Leader, enabling everyone to enjoy the views in the company of other walkers.

Numbers are limited, so registration on-line is advised. (see below for details) Pick a walk length that suits you (or your group) and pay by Credit Card or PayPal.

This event is run by volunteers from the Brindle Community, and profits are given to charities and local causes. This year, the beneficiaries will be Cuerden Valley Park Trust and Tender Nursing Care, Bamber Bridge.

“Check in” is at the Brindle Community Hall before the start, and upon return “check back”  so that everyone is accounted for. Returning walkers then sit down for a Hotpot type meal and hot drinks – all included in the ticket price.

Please expect a raffle, with excellent donated prizes.

This year the walks are kindly sponsored by:

Brindle Distillery – distillers of Cuckoo Gin
Cavendish Arms, Brindle – our local pub

Walkers should bring stout walking shoes or boots, wet and cold weather clothing, mobile phone and expect some muddy and possibly slippery paths. The routes vary across farm fields and stiles, along ancient paths, beside brooks and the canal and are unsuitable for wheels. Dogs are not allowed on the regular walks, and dogs on the dog walk must be under control at all times.

Please note this is a charity fundraising event, so refunds will not be given.

Fundraising this year will be split between the Cuerden Valley Park Trust and the Tender Nursing Care, Bamber Bridge.
