Health Walks - It's FUN, FRIENDLY and FREE!

The health walks scheme is a national project which involves short volunteer lead walks in local communities.  It's all about helping people who don't get much exercise (for whatever reason) to get out and improve their fitness.

All walks are led by experienced, friendly walk leaders who will welcome you to the group and support you on your walk. Walks are graded so you can start with the shortest distance and gradually build up as you get fitter and more confident.

There are Health Walks in the following villages – see our leaflet for walk details:  (link with leaflet attached)

  • Sonning Common
  • Benson
  • Chalgrove
  • Goring
  • Didcot
