Walk this way


At this time of year many of us are thinking about improving our lifestyle and health walks in North Somerset provide the ideal opportunity to do just that.

More than 6,000 people have enjoyed North Somerset Council’s health walks programme since it was launched over 10 years ago.

Health walks happen weekly across North Somerset helping you to get out in the fresh air and get your body moving, get to know the area around you more and meet new people.

You may have walked in the past and got out of the habit or are no longer able to walk as far as you once did. Walking for Health supports anybody who would like to become more active.

You can find out more about the health walk groups in North Somerset and view the full health walks programme from January to March on the council’s website at www.n-somerset.gov.uk/healthwalks.

The scheme relies heavily on volunteers to lead the walks and more are needed. You do not need to have an extensive knowledge of your local area or have an extreme level of fitness, but if you enjoy the outdoors, like helping others and want to be more active in your spare time, then becoming a health walk leader might be just the thing for you.

The next free training day is due to take place in Clevedon on Friday 25 January. For more details call North Somerset Council’s Sport and Active Lifestyles team on 01275 882 731 or email go4life@n-somerset.gov.uk.
