Need to get more active but not sure where to start? Walking is a fun and gentle way of getting fit and staying healthy.

Starter Walks:

These walks also offer the opportunity for people to increase their activity levels and are generally 20-30 minutes in duration. Most of these walk will be on flat ground and therefore may be suitable for wheelchairs and buggy walkers.

Power Walks:
