Reading Walks Programme

About Us

Welcome to Reading health Walks. The Walks programme is aimed at getting more people in Reading walking. This scheme is a great way to meet new people, improve your health and get to know your local community, become more physically active and make new friends.


From Wednesday 18th March we are suspending all Ramblers Walking for Health activities – including group walks, social activities and other meetings.  All these activities must stop until further notice and at least until the 31st May, subject to further developments.
