On the 30th July Fjallraven Manchester Store and local members of the public re-connected with nature and walked Stage 1 of the GM Ringway, a largely traffic-free escape from the city to the tranquil Mersey Valley.
With a great turn out, the walk was well received, Store Manager Darren shared “it was great to get outdoors with the community. People often travel afar to find a nature trail to trek; however, you don’t have to travel too far from Manchester to be at one with nature”.
The day started off at the Fjallraven Manchester store where participants were offered coffee and pastries before the walk began. The Fjallraven Manchester store offered free gifts to those who attended which many seemed pleased about, who doesn’t love a free gift? Those who joined the walk were also invited back to the store after the walk had finished where they browsed the latest Fjallraven pieces.
During the walk participants got to share their love for the outdoors and nature together, trekking through the historic canal towpaths, pedestrian walkways, urban parkland and the trans Pennine trail to trace largely traffic-free and quiet route from the city centre to the verdant Mersey valley.
Be sure to keep checking back to see when the next Fjallraven Manchester Store will take place, you won’t want to miss it.
