Join us on our weekly health walks and take part in regular exercise meeting new people. Best of all they are FREE.
All you need to do is turn up in suitable clothes and comfortable shoes to enjoy the walk.
Details about the walks
- Most walks are 30-90 minutes and approximately two miles.
- Walk routes vary every week, some locations offer a longer walk once every month.
- Walks take account of the pace of the slowest person, but the aim is for brisk walking to increase your heart rate and make you breathe a little faster than normal.
Register before your first walk
Please allow five minutes to register at the start of your first walk so you can fill in a brief registration form.
You will need your GP's agreement if you have been diagnosed or have problems with your heart, balance, joints or bones, or have experienced pains in the chest.
