Introduction

Our Walk 4life programme currently meets as a friends walking group.  Please see the walk meeting dates, times and meeting places below.

Benefits of walking

Just 30 minutes of walking a day can cut your risk of heart disease by up to 40%. Brisk walking, when you breathe a little faster, feel a little warmer and have a slightly faster heartbeat, is an ideal moderate intensity activity.

Activities like health walks are especially beneficial for people with long term health conditions. For example physical activity can help manage some of the debilitating consequences of cancer treatment, and can even help reduce the chance of some cancers coming back. Other benefits of walking include improving circulation and breathing, combating depression, bolstering immune system, reducing diabetes, building bone density, increasing mobility and is a vital part of weight reduction. Plus you're walking in the fresh air and making new friends!
