Freshwalks City: 08_Spinningfields
Wed 19 April 2017, 17:30 – 19:00 BST
SPINNINGFIELDS & CASTLEFIELD CIRCULAR
Welcome to 'Freshwalks City', a new collaboration with Tour Manchester, bringing together business folk in and around Manchester city centre. For our 8th city walk we plan to meet in Hardman Sq, Spinningfields after work for the first time and take a circular walking route (approx 1 hour) around the historic sights of Castlefield and elsewhere. We'll then return to The Refinery, Spinningfields for an optional glass of wine/beer and a healthy salad meal.
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 head home 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 a few nuggets of local insight sprinkled across our walks but first and foremost, it's about meeting new people and simple exercise on carefully selected routes that will stimulate interaction and conversation.
Hope you can join us. Michael.
