Freshwalks City: 07_Manchester Central
Wed 3 May 2017, 12:30 – 14:00 BST
Welcome to 'Freshwalks City', a new collaboration with Tour Manchester, bringing together business folk in and around Manchester city centre. For our seventh walk we plan to meet outside Home (First Street) and take a route (approx 45 mins) through the centre of town. We'll then enjoy a soup and sandwich buffet lunch back at the Royal Exchange Theatre. (Photograph used: Joel C. Fildes)
Our mission is to get Manchester's business community walking much more. To encourage behavioural change that will undoubtedly improve the health and wellbeing of our working population and positively affect business productivity.
You are also going to meet some amazing people, make valuable business contacts and return to the office buzzing with energy and ideas.
Unlike our all-day forays into the Dark Peak wilderness, you simply need to bring yourself. We plan to move at a semi-brisk pace rather than amble along, so a comfortable pair of shoes or trainers might work better than heels or formal shoes. Full details will be sent via email at least 48 hours prior to the walk.
Tour Manchester is led by Sue McCarthy, an official Green Badge Guide registered with the Institute of Tour Guiding. There'll be one or two nuggets of local insight sprinkled across our walks but first and foremost, it's about simple exercise on carefully selected routes that will stimulate interaction and conversation.
Hope you can join us. Michael.
