Bedwyn Health Walks launched this week when residents met the team on Sunday at the village hall and tried out Nordic walking poles. Health walks offer short weekday local walks in a secure environment with a supportive, friendly and sociable group. Whatever your ability the benefits of walking are many in terms of health and wellbeing, as well as the sheer enjoyment of being outside in the countryside. The scheme will need volunteer walk leaders as well as participants so why not get involved? It is well known that the feel-good factor of volunteering benefits the health of the volunteers almost as much as those they help. For Health Walks info contact Jude on 07444 642309.
This new scheme means that walkers in our area are now fortunate enough to be able to enjoy the countryside and walking whatever their ability. Get fit and increase your confidence with the health walks, then when you feel able, come and join Bedwyn Footpaths Group monthly walks (see the events page) or if you are an independent walker then check out our self-guided walks and archive page for suggestions of local routes. Our group also hold special events through the year so enter your email at the bottom of this page if you’d like to receive notification of these.
