North Kesteven Social Strollers

About Us

North Kesteven Social Strollers is a free health walk scheme, and available to all. We have 18 regular health walks, all across the district. All walks are between 30-90 minutes and are led by friendly, experienced and qualified volunteer walk leaders. We also offer a shorter walk of 10-30 minutes once a week.

Walking can improve both your happiness and health as walking is a proven stress reliever and mood improver. Joining the walking groups is an easy way to learn more about your local area whilst meeting new friends - so why not join one of our walks today! All our walks offer the chance to socialise, and after most walks refreshments are available.
