We held our April Greater Manchester Westie Walk at Dovestone Reservoir Oldham on Saturday 13th April, The weather was lovely and sunny, but boy was it cold. This didn't bother the Westies though, a couple even went for a paddle, they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
We had 19 Westies in total, some just met up at the start, some walked a short distance, and some walked all around the reservoir. Everyone walked at their own pace, some fast and some slow, it didn't matter. It was just great to see everyone there.
Dovestone is a beautiful walk, but the car park was bustling. But having said that, cars were coming and going all the time.
We are all looking forward to our next one. If anyone would like to join us, please ask to join our -Greater Manchester Westie Walk- Facebook page or check on here.
We are a national organisation formed by the late Barbara Graham in the late 1970's. Initially we consisted of a few caring colleagues who struggled to make ends meet against all odds and in the face of adversity. The more widely recognised The Westie Rescue Scheme of the present day came into being in 1993. The Scheme now has over 2500 registered 'friends'.
The WRS Dog Sponsorship Scheme is there to care for those Westies who require indefinite and intensive treatment.
This initiative was first brought into existence in 2006 and is designed to help us to continue to care for those dogs who may stay within the scheme for a longer period of time than normal or, as is the case in many instances, indefinitely.
