Leading health walks

A mixed age and abilities group on a Walking to Health event. There’s nothing like walking through the forest, taking in the sights and scents of the seasons, autumn’s rainbow of leaves or the lime green buds of spring.  It is a great way to discover nature, get fit and has also been proven to reduce stress and have other mental health benefits. 

You can become a volunteer health walk leader and make a difference to other people's lives by sharing the wonders of walking in the forest.  If you lead we shall follow.
