PIC: Volunteer Dawn and her group in Victoria Park

Join us for in our spendid urban countryside as Halton Borough Council supports National Walking Month this May.

Most of our walks are around half an hour to an hour, free and offer a chance to meet new people and explore the local area.

Paula Parle, Scheme Coordinator for Halton Borough Council said: “We’re delighted to be supporting National Walking Month this May.

“Our volunteer walk leaders help all sorts of people to enjoy the many health benefits that regular walking brings, providing support every step of the way.”

Walking is an easy and accessible way to improve physical and mental health and just a 20-minute walk can reduce the risk of a number of preventable health conditions, including certain cancers, depression, heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.

By swapping a short drive for a short walk, you can also help reduce air pollution, congestion and road danger – whilst saving yourself some money and getting active in the process

She said: “Our walkers have a great deal of fun, making new friends and getting to know their local area.

“Many of us know we should be more active, so why not join us this May and let us welcome you along to our next walk.”
