Health walks spring back into action

Health Walks here in the Derbyshire Dales have sprung back into action since the Government rules relaxation on May 17.

Organised by your District Council, these free walks all over the beautiful Dales are an opportunity for local people to step away from those lockdown blues into the great outdoors – and meet new friends.

The District Council's Health Walks Coordinator Helen Milton (pictured above) said:
"Walks are led every day of the working week by trained volunteer walk leaders and are welcoming and friendly.
"They are suitable for those with a health condition, getting back from an operation or just wanting to get a bit fitter in a friendly outdoor environment."
The walks range in difficulty from a Very Easy short walk on good ground (30-75mins), Easy Walks on rougher ground (60-90mins) to Moderate walks up hill and down dale (120mins) and more.

No booking is required and there's more information at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/healthwalks

Dementia Friendly walks are restarting in July which will mean the District Council’s full walks programme will be back in action. Paper guides will be available in libraries and GP surgeries for Jul-Sep soon.
