with Walking for Health
Do you wish you did a little bit more exercise? You are not alone. A lot of people wish that they did more; we know how good it is for us but it’s so easy to find an excuse for not actually getting out and doing it.
Inactivity has been described as the new smoking in terms of its harm to health. Regular exercise protects against overweight and associated risks of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and joint problems and it benefits mental health, too.
The good news is that regular brisk walking is the perfect exercise for improving health. It doesn’t need expensive equipment beyond a pair of comfortable shoes and it’s free and accessible to most people. In a short time, a little regular exercise can significantly improve a person’s health, wellbeing and confidence.
A common barrier to walking regularly, however, is not having a companion to walk with. Walking for Health is designed to solve this problem. Our East Surrey Walking for Health scheme provides daily walks lasting from 30 to 90 minutes, led by friendly, trained volunteers in Redhill, Reigate, Merstham, Horley, Caterham and Lingfield.
The walks are not cross-

We are part of the national Walking for Health programme, which is run in partnership by the Ramblers and Mamillan Cancer Support. Together, we offer short, free health walks to help you stay and get active. Your local walks are: Lingfield Byways; Bletchingley East & West; Tandridge; Godstone & Nutfield Marsh. Also, try out our new YMCA walk, Queens Park (Caterham) walk and our Macmillan Cake Walk – for anyone affected by cancer (patients, carers, friends and family).
Also we are always on the look-
If you’d like to join our walks, or know someone who might, please get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.
