TORRENTIAL rain stopped just in time for a new group to step out on its inaugural walk.
Members of the Westminster Park Walking group met at the café in the park during the downpour but by the time they had filled in the necessary forms the clouds had lifted.
The group will meet every Tuesday at 10.30am at the park café for a walk.
The walks will be for all abilities of walkers and are aimed at improving health and encouraging socialising.
James Duckers, community sports officer for Chester City Council, said: “The first walk was a circular route of about 1.8 miles. We have got six different routes already planned and then we may look to walk outside the area.”
