·     ‘Wellbeing Walks’ in South Brent. Free and friendly, easy access 'Grade 1' walks every Wednesday at 10.30am. Meet at the Old School Community Centre (usually outside the big gazebo). “Join us for a gentle amble about the village - We stroll for about half an hour, stopping when a rest is required, and finish with a cuppa and a chat.” This is for those with limited mobility or recovering from inactivity or who just enjoy some friendly company. The walks are free and are led by a walk leader on firm, level surfaces and so are perfect for wheelchair users or people with walking aids. We are a friendly group of leaders and participants and welcome new walkers or people who would like to become walk leaders. No need to book – just come when you want to.

·     Weekly Friday afternoon 'Grade 3' walks. Meet on the bench near the railway bridge at 2.00pm. “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.
