The North City Nomads visit the Lake District

The North City Nomads had a fabulous time at their recent trip.  Over 150 members of the group left north Manchester for a day out in the Lake District.  Many took advantage of the group discount on the North Lakes Ferry Cruise, some ambled around Lake Windermere whilst others enjoyed a spot of shopping.

Some members wanted a 'good walk' and met in Bowness for a two mile hike to Windermere.  The group enjoyed an alfresco coffee break before the onward journey to Ambleside.  They then enjoyed a ferry cruise back to Windermere, with just enough time left for a glass of shandy with some fish and chips!

The group is managed and run by its members and offers up to four trips a year.  Members are encouraged to share information about activities they enjoy and participate in, helping to build social connections and friendship circles.

North City Nomads now has over 550 members.  New member requests are received on a regular basis, for more information please contact Tracey Annette on northcitynomads@gmail.com or 0161 234 4299.
