Keep Walking

Our Keep Walking Group aims to promote health, wellbeing and social support.


Being physically active is one of the most important steps anyone of any age or ability can take to improve their health, and walking is an excellent way to increase activity.
Walking can help you lose weight, but walking also…
• Strengthens your heart
• Boosts creativity
• Manages stress
• Builds energy
• Improves fitness
• Promotes better sleep
• Increases life expectancy
• Is good for your bones

The benefits of walking are endless, and most of all, walking feels good and is fun!
It is easy to do, and all you need is a good pair of shoes.

If you have any concerns about your physical or other health issues please get advice from your GP before coming on the walks.

We aim to follow Government’s guidelines on social distancing by walking in pairs and keeping two metres apart.

See you soon,
