Aims of the course

Walking has been described as the perfect physical activity; it’s good for your physical and mental health. It improves mood and sleep quality, and it reduces stress, anxiety and fatigue. Physically active people have up to a 30% reduced risk of becoming depressed, and staying active helps those who are depressed recover.

Type of course

Groups take place across the district every week. The groups are continuous; once you join you can keep attending for as long as you want. Groups welcome people with a range of ability from people who hardly walk at all to people who are already active.

Who this course may benefit

Because of the wide range of benefits this course suits anyone who would like to improve their physical and mental wellbeing.
