Guildford Walking for Health

About Us

Immediate cancellation of all Guildford Walking for Health walks
with immediate effect as from 18 March 2020.
You will have seen the announcements made by the Prime Minister in relation to COVID-19, and we have decided to follow Government advice.
We have sadly had to take the decision to cancel all group walks and social activities from tomorrow (18 March 2020) onwards. This follows the government advice to avoid all unnecessary social contact, especially by vulnerable groups. 
Does this mean I can’t walk?
Fresh air, sunshine and gentle exercise can do a world of good for your mental and physical health. The advice from the government is that you can continue to walk outside (staying a safe distance from others) unless you are showing symptoms.
We will keep you updated as we move forwards, so do keep an eye out on our website and in your emails.
 
All walkers welcome. Free guided short walks in all weathers (except very icy), year-round.
