Getting active can be tricky… and a bit daunting

Walking for Health is a national scheme that promotes free short walks across the country; helping people get active, make new friends and explore their local area.

We have 65 groups all over Shropshire, with over 1,600 people regularly walking. Groups are generally led by local volunteer walk leaders, working with our Walking Coordinators.

Your local group

To find a local walk visit the Walking for Health website and enter your postcode or local town.

Alternatively, contact our Healthy Outdoors Coordinator, Helen Foxall
