Walks for health

Here are some local walking resources to help you to stay healthy and active:

Walk leader training on Wednesday

Walk leaders make group walks happen, and support many people to live happier, healthier lives. Just come along if you want to connect with our local walking programme and help out.

Contact us here if you have any queries.

Ramblers walking for health

The usual Ramblers Walking for Health activity as set out below is currently suspended, including group walks, social activities and other meetings. All Ramblers activities have stopped until further notice, subject to further developments.

Here's what it would normally look like when running:

Join us on fun walks around the borough led by trained volunteer walk leaders, or become a volunteer walk leader yourself!

  • Fun! Explore your area, get out into the fresh air, meet new people.
  • Healthy! Regular brisk walking can help reduce the risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure, improve blood cholesterol levels and help control diabetes.
  • Keeps you fit! Walking is an ideal form of exercise. Regular walking helps keep bones and joints healthy. A brisk walk can help you lose weight.

For all walks meet at Sanders Park at 9.50am for 10.00 am start.

Car sharing is essential to ensure parking at start of walk

Monday walks begin from the pavilion, Friday walks from the car park.

Monday walks are various lengths from 1 – 3 miles, in and out of the park, on pavement and with no stiles.

Friday walks usually involve driving out into the countryside*, walking over fields, canal towpaths and wooded areas. There may be stiles to negotiate and muddy sections to walk through. Walks vary between 3 and 7 miles.

Please note: Passengers accepting lifts £2 contribution

WALKERS JOIN WALKS AT THEIR OWN RISK
