Amber Valley’s Walking for Health scheme is encouraging people to get out and about in the New Year.
In Belper the walks are being organised by the Belper Walking Group and take place every Wednesday. The walks are in various locations and the details are here: Belper Walking Group. The aim of the group is to encourage local walking as a cheap, convenient form of exercise whilst providing excellent social opportunities and the chance to discover the natural beauty found in and around the surrounding area.
The walks tend to be short, ranging between 1.5 and 3.5 miles long. They are led by trained walk leaders and walkers are able to walk at their own pace. So, if you are looking for gentle exercise in a secure and friendly environment, The Belper Walking Group may be for you.
In Duffield regular walks are also planned. Starting on Tuesday, January 9th, 2018 and taking place fortnightly, the walks will start from the Weston Centre, Duffield from 9.45am. Included will be a beginners walk for approximately 30 minutes, and for those who want to continue, there will be a further 45 minute walk returning to the Centre for refreshments and a chat. Anyone interested is invited to the Weston Centre prior to the start of the walk where they will be welcomed by the walk’s leader, Chris.
All of the Amber Valley walks are led by fully-trained volunteers are free of charge and open to anyone. For information on these walks, or any of the other 14 Amber Valley walks, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.ambervalley.gov.uk for all the walk schedules.
