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.

Here's some example routes that we follow on our Wellbeing walks (the actual routes may vary on the day):
Creative walks are back!
We will be running Creative Walks for a limited time throughout April. The walks are led by experienced artist Simon Jardine. Each walk includes short stops to paint, draw or photograph areas of interest. Walks end with a creative class along with tea and coffee.
They are open to everyone - no experience of photography, painting and drawing is necessary. Free art equipment is provided. Walks are informal, relaxed and friendly. These walks are suitable for adults, but not families or children.
The Croft Hall, Hungerford - 10 to 1pm, Tuesday 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th March.
Mortimer Library, Mortimer - 10 to 1pm , Wednesday 15th, 22nd and 29th March.

As a volunteer Walk Leader you would be helping people in your community to get active and healthy, providing vital support that they otherwise might not get.
As well as ensuring walks are friendly, safe and well run, Walk Leaders are also our ambassadors for walking, and Wellbeing walks - showing people that walking can make a big difference to their lives. To find out how to become a volunteer walk leader, please contact Carol Smith.
