Walking for Health: Age UK Walks (Shrewsbury)

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.

The Age UK group walks are slower pace.  There are no hills or styles to climb but depending on the route there may be inclines, steps and cobbled areas, so please wear suitable footwear.  Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed, with the exception of assistance dogs.

The duration of the walks are approximately 45 to 60 mins, and if you have time after the walk, there are refreshments available at one of the local cafés in town.

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 Susan, the Wellbeing and Friendship Service Co-ordinator, using the details shown.
