Take a step in the right direction and join a Wellbeing Walk
Published on Tuesday, 7th November 2023
Held across the borough, the Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council Wellbeing Walks are free, weekly walks led by trained volunteer walk leaders offering between 10 minutes to two hours of walk time.
Walking is a simple and free way for people of all ages to get more exercise, make friends and reduce loneliness and isolation.
Linked with the Ramblers, the Wellbeing Walks are held weekly throughout the year in various places in Nuneaton and Bedworth.
Cllr Julian Gutteridge, Portfolio Holder for Health and Environment, said:
“We all know the many great benefits that walking can bring, not only to our physical health but our mental health, too.
“It is also a wonderful way to make new friends and can help you feel part of the community.
“Our fantastic Wellbeing Walks are easy to access, sociable and cater for all abilities, and I would encourage anyone to join.”
The walks would not exist without the fantastic efforts of the volunteer walk leaders. As ambassadors for walking, walk leaders provide vital support that members of the community otherwise might not get, and help people to get active and healthy.
If you think this is something you would enjoy getting involved in, please get in touch.
For more information, or to register to take part in one of the walks, please visit the Get Active For Life website.
You only need to join a group once to access all future walks.
