Walking for Health in North East Derbyshire

Walking with a group is a great way to be more active, improve your health and meet new people so why not give it a go? We have a number of Walking for Health Groups across the district, part of a county wide initiative to get the nation walking!

Latest news

Our North Wingfield Walking for Health Groups will resume on Tuesday 13th October, meeting at 11am outside the North Wingfield Community Resource Centre.

Due to Covid-19, we will not be using inside the centre as a meeting point, and there will be no social or refreshments, however the toilet facility is available for use of the group, operating a ‘one in one out’ system and face masks to be worn inside the centre.

We are offering two levels of walks every Tuesday at 11am, a short walk led by Jean and a longer walk led by Trevor. All of our Walking for Health groups are led by fantastic, trained volunteers and we are so grateful for the wonderful work they do.

Our team have put together an extensive Risk Assessment and Briefing Notes for both Walkers and Walk Leaders, please check out our website to access these documents, or ask your Walk Leader to show you a printed copy. If you want to join one of our Walking for Health Groups, or have any questions, please get in touch with Jess – This email address is being protected from spambots.
