Walking is the easiest, cheapest and one of the most sociable ways to become more active.
Health Walks are FREE organised walks in rural areas and towns, led by volunteer walk leaders. Walks are suitable for beginners lasting between 45 minutes and one hour. They take place at various times of the day, throughout all districts in Lincolnshire.
Walking is a great way to meet new people, get some fresh air and gentle exercise. There’s no need to book ahead, just turn up wearing comfortable clothes and shoes. Everyone is welcome.
Jenny, a retired teacher, says:
‘I cannot emphasise too much how good the health walks are. I have a chronic lung disorder, COPD, which means I often get chest infections and am confined to bed. If I have had a chest infection, I can do one of the shorter health walks instead and build up my health and strength in a really enjoyable way. I’ve seen parts of Louth I didn’t know existed and met new people, and I now really look forward to the walk each week.’
