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. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
