Cedars Walkers


Programme for 2019/20

We enjoyed a great variety of walks in 2018/19 including some new ones and look forward to an exciting new season starting in September 2019. Unfortunately it wasn't possible to find a date which suited all the leaders during the summer for programme planning and the programme on this page is still a draft. It will probably be early October before we can finalise amendments and sign it off. However we will try to ensure that we show the correct walks planned in the immediate future.


Where to meet for Thursday walks

Walkers meet at 9:45am at Jethro Centre, Lurgan on Thursdays for car share and minibus unless notified otherwise. Some members meet at Portadown Rugby Football Club (PRFC) at 9:30am for car share although the time may vary depending on where we are walking.

Although we make every effort to stick to the published programme events sometimes conspire to make us change our plans. We try to notify all members of planned walks by text and email by 9:00pm on the night before walks and the website is usually updated by that time also.
