Step out and step up your health and fitness with a good walk
Walking, we all do it everyday, but have you ever really thought about all the health benefits and how you can make it really count?
With Walking for Health, the Guildford walks programme, you can take part in a short free walk nearby to get active and stay active at a pace that suits you.
And as well as being active, it’s also a great way to explore what’s around you and make new friends while you walk, you don’t need any fancy equipment and unlike most things – it’s free!
To take part in one of the Guildford Walking for Health walks just pop along to the start point and one of the trained leaders can take your details then you can get involved in as many and as often as you like.
Walks currently take place every Monday in the Guildford area and are due to start on Tuesdays in Worplesdon and Thursdays in Shere. For more information about any of these contact Annelize Kidd on 07554 423010
Shalford area walks can be enjoyed on Wednesdays, contact Georgina Churchlow on 07714 821159
For walks in the Whitmoor Common area on Fridays, contact Roger Philo on 07905 282658
Volunteers are also needed to help the walks happen either as a walk leader or a back marker. If you are interested in helping with the walks, contact Annelize Kidd on 07554 423010
