Liverpool Brisk Walkers - The B Side
In Memory of Dave Dent
You always had a smile to share.
Time to give and time to care.
Some one to turn to loving and true.
One in a million that was true.
My mate, my friend, my world.
I loved you yesterday, love you today, love you tomorrow.
Dave's 1st year away.
Gone and not forgotten.
RIP. xx
It is now over two years since Dave died. Although Dave died too soon, the Liverpool Brisk Walkers which Dave started, continues, bringing health and social benefits to us all. Thank you, Dave.
The Liverpool Brisk Walkers.  

Would you like to join a sponsored walk to raise much needed funds to pay for legal/planning representation at the Public Inquiry (3rd October 2017), to save Green Wedge land at Allerton Priory from 160 executive houses being built upon it ? (implications for other areas of the Green Wedge).
Please email Pam Leadbetter ( if you would like a sponsorship form and map which I will email to you with an ID number. The registration fee is Ł5 for walkers taking part, which can be paid on the day. The walk starts at All Hallows's Church Hall on Sunday 25th June, meeting from 1.30 for 2pm start. There are two walks to choose from, one shorter than the other, but it would be helpful to know in advance which one you would like to do. The longer walk is estimated to last 2hrs 30mins with a 15-30 min picnic break and the shorter to last approximately 1hr and 30mins. People can bring their own picnic to have at Camphill Woolton, if they decide to go on the longer walk.

What is Brisk Walking?
We all know that walking is good for us but brisk walking is even better!  Brisk walking has been defined as walking at 4 mph.  Although originally we tried to stick to that definition, we have found it better if each person walks at a pace faster than normal but one that is still comfortable for them.  

Who Organises it?
Liverpool Brisk Walkers was started by Dave Dent, a member of the Ramblers’ Association, when the original Brisk Walks organised by Liverpool Park Rangers were discontinued. Sadly, Dave passed away on 21st December 2014.

It must be emphasised that the walks are organised on a purely voluntary basis without a grant or subsidy of any kind.  Except where otherwise stated, the walks are brisk and on the level with the aim of improving the health of participants.  Nevertheless a reasonable degree of fitness is needed.  Whilst every care is taken in planning the walks, participation is entirely at your own risk.  

You are advised to keep either the walk leader or the back-marker in sight and tell one of them if you intend to leave the walk early.  To avoid the possibility of becoming isolated on a walk, new participants are strongly urged to stay near the back-marker.

Where do you meet?
We have three main meeting points:  The Gothic Fountain in Sefton Park at the south (Aigburth Vale) end of the Lake, Calderstones Park at the Mansion House and the Otters Pool Pub, Riverside Drive.  Unless otherwise stated, walks are on Saturday starting at 1:30 p.m.   The walks are usually between 4 and 6 miles.  See Current Walks for full details.

How much does it cost?
Nothing! ...  Unless you want to join us for a meal or other social event for which the cost will be made clear.

Do I need walking boots?
No!  ... Unless it is an occasional longer (not brisk!) walk when this would be made clear.  Stout shoes are recommended.  Consider bringing a bottle of water on the longer walks and in hot weather.
