Walking for Health



From Wednesday 18th March we are suspending all Ramblers Walking for Health activities – including group walks, social activities and other meetings.  All these activities must stop until further notice and at least until the 31st May, subject to further developments.

“Joining my local group has given me the confidence to enjoy all the wonderful green spaces that I didn’t even know existed. I feel liberated.”

Jean Hooton, Health Walk participant

Ever feel like it’d be nice to get out and about more often? Get a little more fresh air in your lungs? Be a bit more active?

Lots of us wish we did more exercise. We know it’s good for us. And we know our health’s important.

If you find it difficult to get active, why not start walking? It’s really easy to get started, you don’t need any special equipment – and best of all it counts towards your recommended amount of physical activity.

Walking can improve your health, your happiness and, it will give you the chance to explore the outdoors, get to know your local area and meet new people. Our local group meets every Thursday and is free, no need to book just turn up!

Walk programme: Jan-June 2020
