Our Healthy Walks are short, friendly walks lasting no longer than an hour.
Anyone can join one, but they're specifically designed to encourage those that would benefit from more exercise to give walking a go.
The routes are easy. Tricky terrain, steep hills and stiles are avoided where possible. Our friendly, volunteer Walk Leaders are very supportive.
Healthy Walks provide a pleasant way to improve health and well-being for those who are getting little or no exercise, recovering from illness or injury, or lacking in confidence. Having said that, the majority of walkers stay because they enjoy the social aspects of taking part and meeting new people!
Our Walks take place Mondays to Saturdays and are offered across the county in the following locations:
Ashdown Forest, Battle, Bexhill-on-Sea, Chelwood Gate, Crowborough, Eastbourne, Hailsham, Hastings, Heathfield, Lewes, Robertsbridge, Rye, St. Leonards, Seaford, Ticehurst, Uckfield.
More are being set up all the time.
Our Walks are free to join and take place every week (apart from bank and public holidays), unless otherwise indicated.
We also offer opportunities for people to become volunteer Walk Leaders. Free training is be provided.
