North Somerset Walking for Health

About Us

UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK ALL HEALTH WALKS IN NORTH SOMERSET WILL NOT TAKE PLACE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE 

 

We now have time to collate some valuable feedback to show others how beneficial this walking programme is to lots of residents in North Somerset. If you are a regular walker and would like to send us some feed please do so via our contact details on this webpage. Thank you 

 

Our scheme welcomes over 300 regular walkers per week in and around Clevedon, Long Ashton, Nailsea, Portishead, Weston-super-Mare, Winscombe, Worle and Yatton.

Health walks will support you to get more active (at a pace that suits you), enable you to get to know your local area whilst making new friends. Everybody is welome.

Future walking progammes in North Somerset will be found on this page when walks resume later in the year. 

Walks are led by trained volunteer walk leaders who very much welcome you to join their groups. Leaders have completed Walking for Health training with many of them also first aid trained.

Walks vary in duration from 30 minutes up to an hour.  We welcome all abilities and very much encourage those who have not exercised for some time to come and walk.

 

On your first walk please allow 10 minutes before the start of the walk to register:

 You will be asked to complete a Registration Form & a health survey questionnaire (this can be emailed to you).

The leader will tell you about the route before the start of the walk (we try to avoid steep hills, stiles, lots of steps and very muddy/slippery surfaces).  Do be prepared for the odd hill and stile, grass, uneven surfaces and puddles after rain. Please wear sensible shoes, preferably walking shoes or trainers, especially during the autumn and winter months.

For those who have not exercised for a long while or feel they would prefer a 30 minute walk please look for more details with the following groups:

Clevedon

Long Ashton

Portishead

Nailsea 

If you would like something a bit more challenging please take a look at the contact list for other walking groups in North Somerset. This can be found  in the downloads. Please note these walks are not part of the Walking for Health programme.

For our scheme to continue to thrive we are always looking for volunteers who would be interested in attending a half-day course to become a Health Walk Leader.

 If you would like to help others get more active through walking and are prepared alongside others to lead short walks on a regular basis then please get in touch.

Hopefully our next training will be on:

Wednesday 13th October 2020 from 9.30am - 1.00pm at The Town Hall, Weston-super-Mare

Do contact us if you are interested in attending.
