Cedars Walkers


Lagan towpath & Giant's Ring - 21 November 2019

We are having a leader's meeting on Tuesday 19 November when we hope to finally finalise our programme of walks. For the present the only walk we have programmed for 21 November is the Giant's Ring but watch this space.


Where to meet

Unless otherwise stated walkers leave Jethro Centre, Lurgan on Thursdays at 9:45am. Please be there at least 10 minutes before departure time for car share and minibus. 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.
