Free, weekly, three hour outdoor sessions of conservation or horticultural activities, aimed at improving health and well being.
A range of health programmes including active in health, cardiac rehabilitation and steady and strong.
If you would like a gentle way to improve your fitness, make new friends and enjoy your local parks and open spaces, do come along to a free health walk. We now have over 200 people a week "Walking for Health" in Basingstoke and the surrounding areas.
Health walks are aimed at anyone who would like to walk at a gentle pace in a safe and social setting. We especially encourage people who may be rehabilitating after an illness who would like to begin to take gentle exercise, or who feel they would like to meet people. We provide short walks for those who are less able and everyone can walk at their own pace. We are currently averaging 120 walkers a week come rain or shine!
The walks are 50-60 minutes long with a weekly short walk (10-30 minutes) organised at Crookham Village for those who are less able. Walks are led by trained Volunteer Walk Leaders and require no specialist walking clothes other than stout shoes. At the end of the walk there are refreshments and a chance for a chat.
Walks are graded according to suitability for the walker. All the 50-60 minute walks are Level 2 whilst the Short walks are graded Level 1. Grades are defined by Walking For Health.
