The Strollers had their first meeting on Monday 28th May.  Seven of us strolled along the Macclesfield canal in brilliant sunshine to Nelsons Pit with a short break for a cooling drink of water.  We then made our way back to High Lane along Middlewood Way with time to look for and try to recognise a few wild flowers.  We discussed briefly the building of the railway (Middlewood Way) and the Macclesfield canal.
The very easy walk took about one and a half hours enjoyed by all who participated.

The walk on 25th June was again attended by 7 members, all ladies this time!  Where are the men of High Lane U3A?  We walked at a leisurely pace along the canal in the direction of Marple, came off at Windlehurst Hall and headed towards Bateson's.  From there we circled back along the canal to High Lane.
The ground was a bit muddy after all the rain but the company was great. A few members then enjoyed a well earned coffee break at Blueberries.
