Lantern Walking for Health (Sundorne)

Description:

Shrewsbury's volunteer-led health walks are delivered under the national initiative, Walking for Health, which aims to encourage people to become more physically active in their local green space.

Lantern Walks

When? Every Wednesday at 10.30am
Where? The Lantern Community Centre

These walks are delivered in conjunction with the "Through the Doorway to Healthy Living" project - a "virtual" healthy living centre working primarily in Shrewsbury, but also across Shropshire.

The organisation aims to reduce health inequalities by giving people the skills, opportunities and confidence to adopt healthier lifestyles.

Walks are led at a gentle pace on easy terrains, such as pavements and easy access paths, lasting no longer than one hour. All walks finish back at the Lantern, for refreshments in the Café.

How do I get involved?

Simply turn up ten minutes prior to the start of the walk for registration. New walkers are asked to complete a quick health screening questionnaire to make walk leaders aware of any medical conditions. We recommend that you wear comfortable footwear and clothing to suit the weather.

Please note this is a government funded initiative so walking with the group is free.
