CPRE Lancashire would like to take this opportunity to promote some events happening in your local area which are directly related to some of our campaign priorities.

Not only do we host our own events, but would like to support the work of other environmental charities and community organisations by making this information available on our website.

This list will be regularly updated so please check back and we hope to see you at some of these wonderful events! 


Upcoming ... 

The Ramblers Association will be holding a Spirit of Kinder event on Saturday April 21st from 1.15 - 4 pm at Friends Meeting House, Mount Street, Manchester. 

Come hear speakers tell us about walking in the past and what the future holds:

Jim Perrin: one of Britain's finest outdoor essayist" according to Robert Macfarlane. He is Manchester-born, radically left-wing, a prolific author, the Guardian country diarist for Wales, and a TGO columnist. In earlier years he was one of Britain's leading rock-climbers. A close friend of Benny Rothman, he has had a passion for the Peakland moors since his early teens.

Keith Warrender: a leading expert on the Trespass and has been giving talks on the Kinder Trespass for nearly forty years. He writes and publishes books about the local history of Manchester, Cheshire and the Peak District, and published Benny Rothman's account of the Trespass.

Kate Ashbrook is a vice-president of the Ramblers, general secretary of the Open Spaces Society, vice-chair of the Campaign for National Parks and patron of the Walkers Are Welcome Towns Network.  She was in the vanguard of the campaign for greater access to open country in England and Wales, and she continues to champion people’s rights to enjoy paths and open spaces in town and country

There will aslo be the opportunity to hear a local choir; see some displays about the history of the trespass and what local groups are doing now about the problems of access; have some refreshments; meet other walkers and campaigners and learn how you could get involved. All are welcome.
