Lifestyle Health Walks byLWG
The Tuesday and Thursday Lifestyle Health Walks began as part of the City Council funded Lifestyle Programme in 2008. After being referred by a local GP, clients were helped to make lifestyle changes to improve their well-being, physical and mental health.
Since 2012 LWG 1 and LWG 2 Health Walks have been run by volunteer led Lifestyle Walking Groups (LWG). New members are recommended by a health professional or an approved voluntary organisation. Companions are welcome.
Regular walks use 32 locations in and around the city. Graded on difficulty and distance, at a reasonable pace they mostly take 40 to 60 minutes, maximum 90. Special walks are longer, more challenging and usually further afield. Progressing to more difficult walks, or not, is the walker’s choice.
Research into the life-threatening consequences of inactivity concluded that walking is the answer.
