Put Your Best Foot Forward

Put Your Best Foot Forward...

A number of short led walks take place every week across Gloucester City aimed at improving people’s health. The walks are FREE and suitable for ALL ABILITIES.

Walking is a great way to improve your health and well-being. Walks are fun, inexpensive and a great way to meet people.

Every walk lasts between 30 - 60 minutes and is led by a fully qualified walk leader who ensures the walks are safe and at the right intensity.

Country walks

Once a month, a group meet for a Level 3 country walk to enjoy some of the stunning Gloucestershire countryside. The walks generally last between 1 and 2 hours with the maximum distance being about 4 miles. The walks generally take place on the first Tuesday of every month and meet at the Abbeydale Community Centre at 10am where cars are shared to the start point of the walk. Previous walks have included Painswick Beacon, Crickley Hill Country Park, Robinswood Hill, Leckhampton Hill, Brimpsfield, Shab Hill, Sandhurst and Cranham.

Please note that the time and day of this walk can vary and may be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions. Please contact Neil on (01452) 619815 for further details and check our News Blog page for information on the next walk.

If you would like some fliers and posters sent out to you to either advertise or give out to customers, associates or friends please contact us.
