West Northumberland Health Walks
West Northumberland Health walks provide short (2-3 mile) walks on a weekly basis from 8 towns and villages across West Northumberland. All the walks are free and there is no booking procedure. Individual programmes for each group are avilable from the co-ordinator on 01670 622368 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org All the walks are led by trained volunteer leaders and the co-ordinator always welcomes enquiries from anyone interested in training to be a leader.
We are now offering shorter walks (10-30) minute walks for beginners or people who feel they can't manage a full hour. The walks are aimed at getting people started,and those with health problems that prevent them from completing the full walk. They will happen once per month within the groups we already have, there will be a dedicated person to walk with you and take you back to the start as necessary. Please contact walks co-ordinator if you are interested in this kind of walk.
This summer there will be a series of walks for adults with dementia and other special needs. Anyone can join our usual walks but these will have more support from trained and sympathetic leaders. For more information please contact scheme coordinator.
