Gentle exercise such as walking can improve physical, mental and social wellbeing. We run a programme of walks that are aimed particularly at older people.

Are you any of the below?

  • Recovering from an illness, fall or accident
  • Keen to get fitter
  • Suffering with sore joints and muscles
  • Limited in your mobility
  • Keen to meet other people locally
  • Told by your GP to get some regular, gentle exercise
  • Enjoy walking but would like to walk with others
  • New to walking but willing to give it a try

If so, then we have the right activity for you. Our walks (listed below) are gentle, friendly and welcoming. We do not rush our walkers and we always have trained volunteers who lead the walk and give support where needed. If you would like to join any of these groups please get in touch.

An annual subscription cost of £18 applies to all of our Walking Groups.

The walk programmes vary, so for more information on meeting places, times and routes please call our Active team on 01225 484510 or email active@ageukbanes.co.uk.
