Community Walks are ideal for people who would like to increase their level of fitness by the use of short walks.

Walking in a group enables people to have fun, relax, to control or lose weight and to feel independent.

Walking in a group 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.

Research has found that even light exercise can reduce the onset of a number of physical diseases as well as mental benefits by reducing anxiety and depression.

Walks are free of charge and light refreshments are available at the end of each walk.

They take place every Friday from the Hawarden Institute, Glynne Way at 10.00am with a choice of 60 or 90 minute walks, slow or medium pace.

A walk is also available in the afternoon starting at 1.30pm.

On the first Friday of the month, morning walks are run from the Church of the Holy Spirit, Ewloe, meeting at 10.00am.Community Walks are also available at Shotton, Broughton & Bretton and Higher Kinnerton.

For further information please contact Colin Herbert on 01244 534637.
