Weymouth & Portland Health Walks

About Us

Our brand new friendly and welcoming health walk scheme started on 5th March 2018.  We have 32 trained volunteer walk leaders who are ready and waiting to walk with you, and to make sure you have a great time,  There will be a chance to stop at the end of the walk for a well deserved refreshments so remember to bring some loose change.  We are happy to take walkers with Dementia but please make sure that they have a buddy/carer with them.  Children are welcome on the walks also but under 18`s will need to be accompanied by an adult.
