Friday 13 May 2022

Public Health Services Walking programme - Walking for Health - is being relaunched as Ramblers Wellbeing Walks on 16th May. The Ramblers have been associated with Walking for Health nationally since 2019 but this year they have assumed full responsibility for the programme. The programme has been rebranded Ramblers Wellbeing Walks to better illustrate the wider benefits of walking and fits with the charity's ethos of walking for all and at many different levels.

Public Health has been running a programme of health walks in Guernsey and Alderney for many years and Coordinator Yvonne Le Page said

"We are very pleased to now be part of the Ramblers national walking charity network. We provide group walks led by trained volunteer walk leaders. All our walks are specially designed to be approximately 30 minutes long and over easy ground, so they are ideal if you've never walked before. They're a great way to meet new people and walk in good company, and to give your health and wellbeing a boost.

They all finish at a café where you can purchase optional refreshments and have time for a catchup. Everyone is welcome - whether you want to improve your wellbeing or you used to enjoy walking but have lost your fitness, either way - you're in the right place. The Ramblers Wellbeing Walks make it easier to start walking and stay active.

Walks organised by Public Health are held each weekday at different times around Guernsey and on Sundays in Alderney and are free. You can find out more by contacting Public Health tel 224136 or go to the Wellbeing Walks website https://www.ramblers.org.uk. Better wellbeing is just a step away!"

Public Health are looking to recruit new leaders to help with the walks. There will a training day on 30th June so if anyone would like to find out more, please call Public Health on 224136.
