There is a regular series of weekday Wellbeing Walks available across the borough run by Cheshire West and Chester Council in partnership with The Ramblers.
All of the walks are led by a team of enthusiastic and friendly volunteer walk leaders. Walkers are recommended to wear appropriate footwear and clothing as the walks take place in all weather conditions throughout the year.
No advanced booking is needed walkers just need to register for their first walk. New walkers are always welcome.
Councillor Louise Gittins, Leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council said, “Walking is an excellent and simple way to increase your activity levels, tone up, help manage your weight, reduce your blood pressure, make your heart fitter and is good for your mental wellbeing.
“Now is the perfect time to put those New Year Resolutions into practise. Walking in a group helps you to stay motivated, gives you the opportunity to make new friends and experience new places and greenspaces.”
