FREE Walking Groups

We are finally getting closer to reaching our new sense of normal!

Please see below various different walking clubs/groups of all abilities all of which are free to join and attend!

We have been living in strange times so understandably the thought of being around people may be a bit daunting to some. These groups are the perfect opportunity to meet new people or attend with a friend in order to socialize or just get a little bit more active without feeling the need to be in an inside pressured environment!

Community ‘Fitness’ Walks

Moderate to brisk paced walks which will allow the participants to benefit from a slightly increased pulse rate, faster breathing but still be able to maintain a conversation with others.  Ideal for anyone wishing to increase their overall fitness.
