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, and after each walk we encourage people to stay for a warm drink and chat if they have time.

Here are some of the benefits from walking:

  • Walking is an easy way to start and stay active
  • Physical Activity plays an important role in boosting mental wellbeing, get outdoors and join us on our health walks.
  • Walking will improve the flexibility and strength of your joints, muscles and bones too – and it’ll reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
  • 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.
