This is the first of our monthly walks in partnership with the Canal and River Trust.
These walks will be for those taking their first steps into walking, those returning to walking and those new to the area that want to connect with other people and make new friends, be more active, take notice of their local neighbourhood, the history and nature around them, to learn with other people and to participation in social and community life. We all want to feel a sense of wellbeing. Life can be tough and we all need a space where we can get away from the noise, pressure and pollution of everyday life.
We will start after children have been dropped off at school and finish in time for everyone to get home for an early lunch! The walks will be taken at a stroll and not a long or fast cardiovascular pace. They are aimed at people who have not walked for a long time and are a little bit afraid of joining a walking group and those who want to get out and start building up their walking again. We will be looking for the first signs that spring is not far away and simply enjoying being outside near water and woods together and meeting new people. and learning a little bit about local history.
