Walk your way to health in Hertfordshire

Walk your way to health in Hertfordshire

If your 2012 fitness regime hasn't started on the right foot, there's still time by joining the Hertfordshire Health Walks!

The Countryside Management Service coordinates a programme of short sociable walks across Hertfordshire which are all led by trained volunteers and are graded to suit all ages an abilities. The walks take place all year round at different times on weekdays and weekends and often finish at pubs and cafes for a well deserved cup of tea after the walk.


Joining the walks is an easy way to get more active and stay more active in 2012. Walking is really accessible; everyone can enjoy the many significant benefits for health and overall wellbeing including weight-loss and reduced risk of dementia, cancer, diabetes, depression and heart disease. And if you needed another good reason to get started - health walks are all free!


So if theres one New Year resolution you aim to keep, make it an easy one - walking more. For full details of walks near you visit our website.


If you want to go one step further, why not check out our volunteer pages or contact the office about opportunities to lead your local health walk. Free training is provided.
