Melton Walking Groups

About Us

Melton Borough Council’s Sport and Physical Activity Team, part of the Active Together team organise 3 weekly walks in cooperation with the Friends of the Country Park, the Senior’s Forum, and Long Clawson Village Hall. The sessions are very popular and are a great way to keep fit and meet new people. All walks have been accredited by Walking for Health.

Beginners Health Walks

The group meets at Melton Country Park, Willow Drive at the Pavilion, on either a Monday or a Friday evening at 5pm. The walks last between 30mins to an hour, depending on the group attending. The terrain is fairly flat, with no stiles. This makes it perfect for beginners of all ages, and those just wanting a leisurely stroll. The country park is full of great scenery and nature, making the walks extremely interesting and pleasurable for everyone. We currently have a small, friendly and bubbly group, which we hope will expand.

For confirmation of the walk and for more information please contact the Volunteer Walk Leader Evie - evie301246@gmail.com

Long Clawson Health Walks

The Long Clawson Health Walks are a long established walk within the Borough of Melton. The walks last between 30 to 90 minutes. The group are friendly and always on the lookout for new members! Everyone is welcome regardless of age or ability. Meet at Long Clawson Village Hall and Recreation Ground every Wednesday at 10.00am. Some walks take place at alternative venues, however all walks meet at the Village Hall initially. 

For further information, call Chris on 01664 823526.

Senior walks

The senior walks take place every Thursday at 1.30pm, with the group meeting at Melton Country Park Visitors Centre. The walks are 30 - 60 minutes on good surfaces and fairly flat routes with no stiles. The group is friendly and is suitable to beginners and newcomers to walking. On alternative weeks the walk takes place at a different venue, again the group meet at the Country Park initially and then travel to the walk together. Details of the programme is available by contacting the Scheme Coordinator on 01664 502 502.
