The Kensington and Chelsea Walking Alliance is a locally run partnership that gives people the chance to improve their own health and to get involved in free local health walks.The partnership has a co-ordinated approach and has the potential for joint funding applications to enable the local walk programme to continue to grow and have a long-term future. The walks are led by trained local residents who are both enthusiastic and understanding of walker's abilities.
The walks are all free of charge and open to all, please wear suitable shoes as it can get muddy occasionally and please bring a rain coat. You may also want to bring a small amount of money for a social tea/coffee either during or at the end of the walk.
