Walking

Walking is great fun and is an easy way to keep active. It helps with weight management and prevents illnesses including type 2 diabetes, some cancers and coronary heart disease. It can also promote positive mental wellbeing and benefits quality of life.

Walking groups are available across the Borough. They provide opportunities to be sociable and a chance to meet new people. Walking in groups can also help you feel safer and more confident.
