May is #NationalWalkingMonth
May 2017 is national walking month, so there has never been a better time to get into your walking boots and join us!
Everyone can do it
Walking is fun, cheap and a form of exercise everyone can do.
Every week we offer a choice of five group walks, led by specially trained staff and volunteers.
Reduce the risk
Walking 3 times a week can reduce your risk of
- Having a stroke by up to 60%
- Developing heart disease by up to 50%
- Developing diabetes by up to 50%
- Developing arthritis by up to 20%
All of the walks are around the local countryside and mostly on firm paths. Walks range from 0.8 miles – 3 miles and are graded A to E – A being easier terrain than those graded E.
