CHAIRMAN’S LETTER (September # 2)

Hi to All Our Anchor Members – New and Old

May I thank everyone of the 36 members who attended our walk at Arnside last Sunday. It was so good to see all our members on a coach walk once again. Despite the rainy weather everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. As the weather cleared up some of us managed to sit outside in the sunshine at the pub and enjoy some lively banter.

Clearly it is very important to continue this good turnout at our next walk at Llangollen. I know some of us are not impressed with Welsh venues however this one is only a few miles from both Wrexham and Chester and so not far to travel. The town and area are interesting and will provide excellent walking. In addition, a number of cafes and pubs are to hand for your enjoyment.


Again, certain precautions are as follows: –

  • Prior to entering the coach all members must put on a mask which should be worn on both outward and return journeys. No social distancing is required on the coach at this time.
  • It is appreciated that wearing a mask for longer periods can be uncomfortable and therefore journeys to walks will be kept relatively short for the next 3/6 months or until we can go back to “normal conditions”

Future Walks

  • Sunday 17th October 2021 Walk Venue: – Llangollen. (Going South)

We will return at 5.30 p.m. as last time

NOTE: – For attendance and Track & Trace Reasons you MUST book on with

Joan Heaton our booking secretary on 07815 441789

For those who have forgotten or particularly NEW members the meeting points are as follows: –

Going South:



at College Street. Opposite ‘Brewery Inn




at Culcheth Bus Stop, Warrington Road (A574). Next to ‘The Pit Smokehouse’




at Stockton Heath Bus Stop, London Road (A49). Outside ‘Piccolino Restaurant’


Although the cost of the coach has increased significantly since Covid for these two walks will the coach fare will remain at £12.00. To help our rebirth after Covid may I ask as many as possible of our members and in particular new members who have been patient in waiting to join us to book on for this walk-in order that we can have a great start to a new era. Remember we have a reputation for being YOUR FRIENDLY walking club. So, let’s enjoy walking together and enjoying each other’s company after such hard times.


Please pass this message on to other members and friends who are welcome to join us.

Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible in October. Keep Safe.          

Ernie Rothwell – Chairman




Tuesday 16th November 20:00 at Leigh Miners’ Welfare Club, Kirby Road WN7 4EF





A note from our beloved Dorothy …

I would like to thank everyone in the club for their flowers, cards, messages and prayers … in Our Dorothysupport of me through my illness.

Although I had a blip, my treatment resumes in late January. I am coping well and isolating like the rest of us in these tough times!

What a wonderful group of people that make up Anchor Ramblers are. George and I have walked with the club since 1984, until Christmas 2019 when ill health forced us into retirement … what happy memories we both have during those times.

We wish you all well for future trips, that hopefully will resume in the not too distant future.

Once this dreadful pandemic is over, I hope to start seeing you again … and just maybe a trip out(?)!

With love from Dorothy
