‘South Brent Walk & Talk’ / 'Walking for Health'

Free and Friendly 'Easy Access' 'Grade 1' walks. Every Wednesday at 10.30am. Meet at the Old School Community Centre. These walks are a great way to become more active if you don't usually walk or if you have been unwell or have limited mobility. They are suitable for people who would like some support to get back to walking again or maybe just would prefer to walk with others. The walks are free, usually last about 30 minutes and are led by a trained walk leader on firm, level surfaces and so are perfect for wheelchair users or people with walking aids. We are a very friendly group of leaders and participants and would welcome new walkers or people who would like to become walk leaders. No booking required – just turn up. Bring a flask if you would like to stay and sit down in the outdoor area for a drink.

Weekly Friday afternoon 'Grade 3' walks. Meet by the Pavilion at Palstone Recreation Park at 2.00pm (note earlier time). “Come and join our friendly group and enjoy regular, free, healthy walks on roads and footpaths in and around South Brent. After the walk we stop for a cup of tea or coffee.” The Friday 'Grade 3', walks are the more challenging grade, lasting for 60-90 minutes using a variety of footpaths, roads and tracks, some of which may be uneven, muddy and slippery or involve steps, inclines and stiles. They are suitable for those who do a certain amount of physical activity but who wish to improve their general fitness.
