Join the Deeside Ramblers on one of their walks this January, its a perfect way to get out and enjoy the region.

News Years resolutions tend to invariably centre around our own personal well-being, drink less, give up smoking, eat healthier, and take more exercise to name just a few.

Whilst many a resolution go out the door as quick as they came in, an easy and enjoyable way of getting some regular exercise is to think about joining a walking group such as Deeside Ramblers.

As well as the great exercise the variety of long and short walks the group lay on have a great social side too.

Throughout the year there is always an interesting programme such as walking holidays, coach rambles and evening meetings with excellent speakers who talk about the local area.

By joining the Ramblers you will also be safeguarding Britain’s countryside by protecting and maintaining rights of way.

Walks planned for January are as follows:

  • Sunday, 11 January, 10am – Around Willaston, meeting at Hadlow Rd. Station, Willaston (8 miles) 
  • Saturday 24 January, 10am – Around Ellesmere, meeting at the Boathouse, Mereside , Ellesmere (8 miles)
  • Wednesday 28 January, 10am – Erddig Round, meeting at Kings Mill PH, Wrexham. Optional pub lunch. (5 miles)

According to research:

Exercise such as walking can bring a number of benefits, these can include the reduction of anxiety and depression, preventing diabetes, help to reduce weight, reduce the risk of bowel cancer and improve muscle strength.

It can even be good for your brain! In a recent report produced by Stanford University they found that creative output increased by an average of 60 percent when walking.

Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook has been seen having meetings on foot.

Walking in a group such as Community Walks, takes away the possible anxiety of walking on your own due to perceived ‘dangers’ or perhaps getting lost. It also brings the opportunity of making new friends, feeling a sense of achievement and being able to get out of doors. Walk leaders are qualified to lead a group and will know the area they are walking in.
