Walking for your health and wellbeing
Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier. Almost anyone can do it, anytime and anywhere.
Walking briskly can help you build stamina, burn excess calories and make your heart healthier. It can also reduce stress and help you feel good and sleep better. Even a brisk 10-minute daily walk has lots of health benefits and counts towards your recommended 150 minutes of weekly exercise.
Free group walks are an enjoyable way to discover your local area, meet new people and improve your health! They are led by volunteers along a planned route - just turn up 10 minutes early in suitable outdoor clothing and footwear.
