Why not join and Weymouth & Portland Free health walk today. Our Walks are gentle, enjoyable, on the flat (buggy friendly) and 10 to 45 minutes long.
Walks are free. And our friendly guides make it fun whatever your health needs. Some walkers are recovering from illness or injury, others simply want to rebuild their fitness in an easy and enjoyable way.
Olwen Morgan, from Weymouth, explained why she loves health walks, she said: “I am so glad I joined the health walks, I really enjoy them. I’d injured my back and lost a lot of confidence, joining the walks has given me my confidence back. I feel so much better and it is fun.”
‘I am so glad I joined a health walk’
Ken Whatley, from Weymouth, said: “The walks are great, everyone is friendly and you can go at your own pace. Many of the walks are on the flat and not too long, ideal for anyone wanting to get back into walking. Going on a free guided walk is very enjoyable, I’d recommend them to anyone.”
‘There is no such thing as too slow’
Andrew Harris, Volunteer Walk Leader, said: “Our walks are fun and friendly, there is no such thing as ‘too slow’ or ‘not fit enough’ for our walks. We always have two guides, so people can go at their own pace, one guide leads from the front and the other keeps company with those who prefer a more moderate pace, or simply like to chat and enjoy the view, we really do cater for everyone.”
You may like to become a volunteer walk leader yourself – the next free training course is on Thursday 12th July starting at 9.30am – 3.30pm – all we ask is that you can volunteer at least 2 hours a month.
