Everybody Sport & Recreation is working with passionate volunteers, who have been trained by Walking for Health UK, to provide weekly short walks in the town centres and rural areas of Cheshire East to help local residents get out, increase activity levels and socialise in a safe environment.

Everybody Sport & Recreation are working in partnership with ‘Walking for Health UK’ which is an England-wide programme of health walk schemes that deliver free, regular led walks that are designed to support people get active and stay active.

These FREE short walks are accessible to all, particularly people who are looking to increase their activity.

The benefits of walking are fantastic and wide ranging:

  • Walking is an easy way to start and stay active
  • Physical Activity plays an important role in boosting mental wellbeing
  • Walking will improve the flexibility and strength of your joints, muscles and bones – and will reduce the risk of osteoporosis
  • It’s a chance to get active outdoors, socialise & meet new people
  • “By Joining a Walk group you’re sure to find a friend.” Walking in a group is a gentle & social way to get active and a nice way to meet new people

If you would like to attend a walk, pre booking using Eventbrite is essential and must be completed prior to attendance. Anyone who arrives without booking will be turned away. Please visit our section below “Health Walks in Your Area” to find out how to book.

If you would like to be a volunteer walks leader please email: [email protected] and come join the team.
