In light of the Coronavirus outbreak, and the actions that are being taken by individuals and organisations across the country to minimise the effect of the disease within the community, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone all the AONB supported walk programmes with immediate effect including;
Tamar Valley Walking for Health Group
Tamar Valley Walk & Talk Group
Saltash Walk & Talk Group
Bere Alston Walking Group
We hope you will understand the reason for this decision. We feel it is the responsible course of action and have taken this step with the wellbeing of our walk leaders and walkers in mind.
In the meantime, enjoy these ‘virtual’ walks written by Jean over the past few months, who regularly attends the Tamar Valley Walk & Talk group on Wednesday mornings – just the tonic at the moment! (please scroll down)
A great way to meet new people, explore your area, improve health, and it’s free!
There are two Walk and Talk Groups in the AONB: one meets every Monday in and around Saltash, and the other is every Wednesday around the rest of the Tamar Valley (and beyond!)
These groups are of a ‘medium ability’ level, many walks being quite energetic and lasting over 1.5 hours over varying terrain. The group is a social walking group, with health and wellbeing in mind. The current programmes for both groups are available to download below:
If you need a little encouragement to join our friendly, free, weekly walks, why not take a look at just some of the wonderful blogs written by Jean over the past few months, who regularly attends the Tamar Valley Walk & Talk group on Wednesday mornings. The group celebrated their 10th anniversary in summer 2019.
**These will be updated every 3 months, so please check this section regularly**
Once a month there is a Walk & Talk Plus (W&T+); this is a longer walk and a little more energetic!
Some walks will also use short train or bus journeys to reach suitable walk routes, please bring change and rail/bus passes if you have them.
For more information on joining any of the Walk & Talk events – such as if you’re unsure if a walk is for you – please contact the group organisers as stated on the programmes above.
Tamar Valley and Saltash walker Juliette has written a short article on Walk and Talk; we’ve published it on our blog here.
