South Somerset: Step Out for Health

About Us

South Somerset: Step out for Health programme is supported by South Somerset District Council to enable and encourage people to become more active, more often. There are a number of Walking for Health Walks, which are led by volunteer Health Walk Leaders across the South Somerset district as a way to improve your health through regular walking within the local community.

The programme encourages walking on a regular basis in a sociable atmosphere. Under the programme walkers of all ages and abilities can access the walks. Each walk has a trained volunteer Health Walk Leader and you are supported to walk at a pace that you find comfortable. Some of the walks have refreshments, which are optional but does enables the walkers to get to know each other.

Follow the link below for more information about health walks and how to become a leader.

BUGGY WALKS

The idea of buggy walks is to give parents the opportunity to walk with their young children, get some fresh air and chat to other parents at the same time. Taking out the need for transport to travel to access physical activity or exercise, child care as the children can join in on the walks either in a buggy or walking themselves and cost as barriers to being more active as the walks are free.

We are always looking for volunteers to support and deliver buggy walks in any area of South Somerset. Training is provided and is suitable for individuals with no prior knowledge of walking who want to lead health walks or buggy walks in their local area. For more information on Health Walks, Buggy Walks or Health Walk Leader Training please contact Sam Wenden-de-Lira, Tel: 01935 462346, email: sam.wenden-de-lira@southsomerset.gov.uk or contact Catherine Devonshire, Tel: 01935 462347, email: catherine.devonshire@southsomerset.gov.uk, or look on the South Somerset District Council's website www.southsomerset.gov.uk/healthwalks
