Could you be a volunteer Health Walk Leader?
Walking is a great way to stay healthy, both physically and mentally and lots of evidence suggests that regular walking with a group adds social benefits too. A free one-day training course for volunteer Walk Leaders will take place in Sherborne on Monday 22nd October. No prior experience is required, just lots of enthusiasm and an interest in supporting others to stay healthy. The North Dorset Walking For Health scheme has trained over 50 volunteers who now provide weekly Health Walks in Sturminster, Blandford, Shillingstone, Gillingham, Shaftesbury and Sherborne. These are opportunities for those who want to walk a short distance of 1-2 miles at a steady pace in a friendly group. All walks are free and local GP practices are supporting the scheme as they are keen to promote the health benefits associated with regular physical activity. If you would like more information please contact Keith Harrison, Scheme Coordinator on 07825 691508 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Details of all walks are on the scheme website - https://www.walkingforhealth.org.uk/walkfinder/north-dorset-walking-for-health - and there is a Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/northdorsethealthwalks
