Walking Group.

Generic walking group

The Glasgow & District Association Walking Group organise regular monthly walks from February through to October, normally between six to nine miles for which a good level of fitness is required. We also include some shorter heritage walks from time to time.

We are a friendly, social group and usually organise an optional pub style lunch following our walks.

If you are interested in joining the group or would like some further information regarding the type of walks undertaken please contact one of our co-ordinators;

The Mousetrap -Applications closed!

LOOK – I KNOW THIS WILL SOUND CHEEZY, AND I’LL TRY TO BE AS HUMANE AS POSSIBLE, BUT THE APPLICATION PROCESS FOR TICKETS TO SEE THE MOUSETRAP ON 31st OCTOBER HAS JUST SLAMMED SHUT! 

Or to put it another way – all seventy-five tickets for the outing have now been taken up. 

Many thanks again for your continued support of The Association.

No Jacket Required.

It may have been acceptable for Phil Collins back in the mid-Eighties, and more recently, the trend-setting England football team manager, Gareth Southgate, but the ‘waistcoat’ look was most definitely frowned in some branches of the bank back in the day.

According to a couple of my managers, it made me look like a railway platform ticket collector (remember them?) and left me ruing the extra expense of buying a smart three-piece suit in the first place.

And yet, my three inch platform shoes and mullet haircut drew no comment. Not to my face at least.

Does anyone have any more unwritten or idiosyncratic ‘rules of the branches,’ they’d be willing to share?
