Westbury Walking Group offers gentle way in to exercise

They are a great chance to meet new people and also to learn more about the local area

John Thomson, Wiltshire Council’s cabinet member for leisure

Wiltshire Council has launched a new walking group in Westbury for people who want to enjoy an easy return to fitness and exercise.

Qualified volunteers already lead two weekly events around the town for different levels of fitness ‘strollers' and ‘striders.' Now there is an extra starter walk for beginners as well.

All walks are free of charge and there is no need to book, although there is a short registration form to complete before your first walk.

Simply turn up at the White Horse Health Centre and join in at 9.30am every Thursday.

John Thomson, Wiltshire Council's cabinet member for leisure, said: "The walks offer an opportunity for increased physical activity.

"They are a great chance to meet new people and also to learn more about the local area."

Westbury's Get Wiltshire Walking group formed in 2012 and attracts between 30-40 people every week.

It is part of a network of Wiltshire Council walking groups across the county.

For more information on the walks visit our website or contact Louise Gale louise.gale@wiltshire.gov.uk 07342 066608.
