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.

What to expect

For all walks meet at Sanders Park at 9.50am for 10am start. Car sharing is essential to ensure parking at start of walk.

Monday walks: begin from the pavilion. Various lengths from 1 – 3 miles, in and out of the park, on pavement and with no stiles.

Friday walks: begin from the car park. Usually involves driving out into the countryside, walking 3 – 4 miles over fields, canal towpaths and wooded areas. There may be stiles to negotiate and muddy sections to walk through. Please note: passengers accepting lifts £2 contribution.

Walkers join walks at their own risk.
