Walking for Health - FREE

walking-for-healthOur local health walks provide low intensity walks which are suitable for people of all abilities. The walks are mostly on flat ground with no stiles to climb; the walks last for approximately 1 - 1.5 hours and are varied week by week. The walks are also suitable for people with a range of medical conditions which would benefit from increased physical activity levels. Your walk leader will make sure you walk at a pace that suits you. The walking groups are a great way to meet new friends and to discover the natural beauty of the areas we live in. And best of all it's free!  Remember to wear sturdy flat shoes and bring a waterproof coat.
