Residents invited to step out to join the Ramblers Festival of Winter Walks!

 

Residents in the Rochford District and Castle Point Borough are being invited to step out with the Ramblers during its free, annual Festival of Winter Walks to explore the areas at their wintry best.

 

Ramblers groups will be leading hundreds of free walks from 19 December 2016 until 8 January 2017. Walking for Health Rochford District and Castle Point will be taking part in the festival by offering a range of free, short walks to compliment the longer Ramblers ones.

 

Rochford District Council’s Portfolio Holder for the Community, Cllr June Lumley said: “We’re delighted to be part of the Ramblers Festival of Winter Walks. Our volunteer walk leaders’ help all sorts of people to enjoy the many health benefits that regular walking brings, providing support every step of the way.

 

“Our walkers have a great deal of fun, making new friends and getting to know their local area. Many of us know we should be more active, so why not join us this festive season and let us welcome you along to our next walk.”

 

Most Rochford District and Castle Point walks take no longer than 60 minutes, with at least one walk of less than 30 minutes every month. By keeping walks short, new walkers and those with long term health conditions will feel more confident getting started.

 

Walking counts towards the recommended 150 minutes of physical activity people should be doing each week. Only 61% of adults in England are currently meeting this recommendation, but walking offers a free and simple solution.
