Wellbeing Walks (formerly Walking for Health)
Helping people lead a more active lifestyle
It's easy to start walking, as the walks are free and easy, ranging from 30 to 90 minutes. Some walks stop for coffee afterwards in a nearby cafe, a good opportunity to socialise and relax after the walk.
For more information, please visit Wellbeing Walks West Berkshire on the Ramblers website.
New Creative Wellbeing Walks
Shaw House, Newbury and Inkpen Village Hall
Try something new and join a free creative wellbeing walk, led by local artist Simon Jardine. Each walk includes short stops to paint, draw or photograph areas of interest.
These walks are open to everyone, including those with no experience of photography, painting and drawing and those with an active interest. Free art equipment is provided and the walks are informal, relaxed and friendly. Free tea and coffee will be available at the end.
These walks are suitable for adults, but not families, or children.
Please visit the Wellbeing Walks West Berkshire page on the Ramblers website for dates and further information about upcoming creative walks, or view our Creative Walks leaflet linked under 'Find a Walk' below.
Places must be booked in advance. To book and for more information please contact Nicola Peacock at Nicola.Peacock2@westberks.gov.uk.
