On Your Doorstep - Local Health Walks for Mansfield & Ashfield

About Us

Our walks are open to anyone who wants to take up walking as a means of improving their general health and wellbeing. The walks are free and you will not be required to join anything. First-time attenders will be asked to complete a registration form.

These walks are also aimed at people who are recovering from a medical procedure or operation; people who have been ill and people who have been advised to take exercise for health reasons.

There is also a strong social element to these walks and we encourage people to stay at the end of the walk for a chat over tea/coffee. We also organise regular social events, including meals.

For people who are unable to walk for up to 90 minutes or need to walk on fairly flat, good surfaces, we also offer very short walks. Our Every Step Counts walks are on pavement/tarmac and last less than 30 minutes. Our Beginners walks last for 1 hour and are also on pavements/tarmac.
