WALKING is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to get involved in physical activity, and there are numerous Health Walks being run locally in Louth, says the Lincolnshire Sports Partnership.
Trained volunteer Health Walk leaders lead free short walks to include everybody regardless of ability, in a friendly and sociable environment, in and around the local town and countryside.
There are two walk groups in Louth which meet at the Meridian Leisure Centre and Hubbards Hill, Crowtree Lane. There is also the East Lindsey Heart Support Group.
Sarah Ferneyhough, Physical Activity Manager at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, said: “Health Walks are becoming increasingly popular with almost 3000 people in Lincolnshire now regularly attending walks. They are one of the cheapest and easiest ways to improve your health, and are a great way to meet new people and have fun.”
Health Walks are funded by NHS Lincolnshire which means that they are free to attend. They are suitable for beginners and will be led by trained volunteers. The majority of walks are between 45 minutes and 1 hour 20 minutes.
