Volunteers needed to lead health walks

by mikebell on 27 February, 2020

More volunteers are needed to help lead the popular health walks in North Somerset.

More than 6,000 people have enjoyed North Somerset’s health walks programme since it was launched over 12 years ago. The scheme relies heavily on trained volunteers to lead the walks that take place every week across the district.

If you enjoy the outdoors, like helping others and want to be more active in your spare time contact North Somerset Council to find out more about the next free training morning at the Town Hall in Weston-super-Mare on Wednesday 4 March.

You don’t need to have an extensive knowledge of your local area or an extreme level of fitness. You just need to be able to guide and support small groups and encourage them to be more physically active alongside other trained walk leaders.

A new health walk has started this year from @Worle Sports Centre in Lower Bristol Road, Worle and anybody who lives in the area is welcome to join. The walk caters for all abilities, especially those who are not currently exercising or are unable to do anything too physically challenging.

For more information about both the walk and the next volunteers training session contact the council’s Active Lifestyles team on 01275 882 731 or email go4life@n-somerset.gov.uk.
