Hambleton Strollers Walking for Health

About Us

Hambleton Strollers organises led walks which start from doctors' surgeries, Leisure Centres and other central points in the six main towns of Hambleton District in North Yorkshire- in Northallerton, Stokesley, Thirsk, Bedale, Easingwold and Great Ayton plus some nearby villages.

Hambleton Strollers CIO was registered as a charity with the Charity Commission, as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, with effect from 1 April 2020.

Walks are not currently taking place because of Covid 19 restrictions, but the group has its sights set on the future beyond this difficult time.  Walks will resume as soon as possible when restrictions have been lifted.  In the meantime, we echo the national advice to keep exercising outside if possible once a day

Hambleton Strollers scheme started in spring 2003.  From April 2018 the project became totally volunteer-run and is now managed by a Volunteer Management Co inactive lifestyles.ommittee supported by about 50 Volunteer Walk Leaders.  As a registered charity from April 2020, the group has Trustees and a new constitution (which can be downloaded on the right hand of this page).

The group's partners include the Ramblers Association, who run the national Walking for Health scheme. Hambleton District Council and Heck Foods.  The walks are all in  Hambleton District whose  Council supports the scheme and provides financial and administrative support..

Our walks are usually an hour and are on good level footpaths around the towns and on surrounding field paths when weather conditions allow. There may be small gradients..

The walks are relaxed and friendly, but moving at a pace brisk enough for individuals to feel an increased heart rate and faster breathing. We always suggest that walkers continue to exercise more frequently as well - on their own or with friends.

Walks in Stokesley start at 10.15 a.m. - so walkers meet at 10 a.m.  From 1 January 2014 - the walks in Great Ayton will also start at 10.15 a.m.

All other walks start at 10.30 am. Many outings offer opportunities for refreshments afterwards. Please come and join us when you are in the area. - You can view the list of current walks by clicking on the link "Walk Programme" in the downloads listed opposite.

Independent walk packs with maps of walk routes have been developed so that people can follow the routes more frequently and therefore maintain the health benefits. Copies of all the walk packs are available from the Co-ordinator or you can click on the link on the right to view and print a copy.
