Walking for Health (Shrewsbury) Ladies Group

Description:

Walking for Health walks, are short walks designed to enable people to enjoy some exercise out in the fresh air, and are part of the national Walking for Health initiative.

The walks are led by trained volunteer walk leaders who lead the walk at a pace to suit those who come along.  They are free and you do not need to book  -  just turn up a few minutes early to your first walk so that you can meet the walk leader.  They are a great way to enjoy some exercise in a friendly social group, and evaluation shows that walkers are feeling fitter, breathing easier, losing weight, making new friends, discovering new local places and much more.

This Ladies-Only Walking for Health Group meets every Thursday at 10am at the Riverside Shopping Mall (at the bottom of the stairs leading to Frankwell footbridge), except on the last Thursday of each month when there is an 'away' walk using public transport. For these walks the Group meets instead at the Bus Station (in the main under cover part), at the earlier time of 9.45am to allow for bus times.  Suitable footwear with a good grip is recommended.

The Ladies-only group walk at a gentle to brisk pace on easy terrain, such as along the River Severn or walks in the Quarry. Their walks last approximately one hour.

For more details of the grades, lengths and times of the walks available in your area follow the link to the Walking for Health website, or contact the Walking Co-ordinators using the details shown.
