Ideal to improve your general health and wellbeing.
Walking is ideal for all ages and abilities. It will help you improve your general health and wellbeing, introduce you to new friends and help you discover new areas to walk on your doorstep.
Just 30 minutes a day of moderate exercise like walking can benefit your health and you can progress from short gentle strolls on flat ground to brisk country walks with stiles and hills. You do not need any expensive equipment to take part in the walks, just sturdy footwear and appropriate dress for the British weather!
Health benefits to be gained from walking include:
- Lower blood pressure
- Reduced risk of coronary heart disease, strokes and Type 2 diabetes
- Reduced risk of certain cancers, improved flexibility and strength of muscles, joints and bones
- Improved mental health and reduced risk of depression, anxiety and stress
re:fresh Led Walks Programme
These volunteer led walks take place throughout the week, lasting one hour to 90 minutes. They meet at various locations in the local area.
Due to the lifting of restrictions we will no longer be taking bookings for these walks and you can just turn up on the day.
Witton Park Xplorer Trail
Xplorer is the perfect outdoor activity for children and their families. It is educational and fun and gives children a sense of adventure as they explore the park to find the markers.
Children will enjoy using a simple map to complete the navigational challenges, with two courses to choose from.
