Rushcliffe Health Walks
Rushcliffe's programme of free, friendly, health walks are a great way to meet new people and socialise while walking to benefit your health.
Just come along to one of our walks, or for more information contact Simon on 07976 631194 or Duncan 07969 330846.
With effect from Wednesday 18 March all Ramblers Walking for Health Activities are suspended until at least 31 May. This includes all Rushcliffe Move & Mingle Health Walks and means all our walks are cancelled. We will update this page with any changes.
If you would like to get involved by volunteering as a walk leader, please get in touch. We'd love to hear from you. Click HERE to read about volunteering with WFH.

Rushcliffe Ramblers also have a Sunday Short Walk Programme in West Bridgford. Please note these are not 'Health Walks' but a programme of local, morning or afternoon walks organised by our local Ramblers group.
We are grateful to County Councillor Reg Adair for support from the Councillors' Divisional Fund enabling our volunteers to continue our walks programme; promote and publicise walks and train new walk leaders.
