Healthy Living Walking Initiative

Over the last few years, several volunteers have undertaken Walk Leader Training to ensure that they were suitably qualified to lead walks.

In spite of the awful weather, the Rural festival in May 2007 proved the catalyst to an interest in local walks graded for those who were maybe wishing to become more active but would prefer the company of a group.

In the Healthy Living partnership meetings some local GP's had established an interest in a GP walk referral scheme for graded walks. Walk descriptions will ensure that it is clear if walks will be on pavement/made up footpaths or a little more rural and rugged. The schedule will complement other walks which are already organised by local walking groups.

For those interested in becoming a Walk Leader, please visit the Strolling in Stroud website.

Important note: those interested in coming along do not have to be referred by a GP but will be asked to fill in a short confidential medical questionnaire.
