North East Derbyshire Walking for Health

About Us

WALKING FOR HEALTH CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Following government guidelines regarding the Covid 19 virus, all walks are cancelled until further notice.

North East Derbyshire's Walking for Health groups are open to everyone of all ages and levels of ability. We aim to get more people more active. All of our groups will have a social element attached so that you can have a chat with like minded people so they are also a great opportunity to meet new people.

All of our walks are FREE and led by a suitably qualified Volunteer walk leader.

Derbyshire Sport recently made a short film about the group featuring interviews with the scheme coordinator, a walk leader and one of the walkers, click here to view it.
