Walking the way to Health
« on: May 15, 2005, 21:59 »
The 'Walking the way to Health' Initiative (WHI) aims to get more people walking in their own communities, especially those who take little exercise or live in areas of poor health.

If you are interested and would like more information then contact Jim Nutt at Sedgefield Borough Countryside Team, Green Lane, Spennymoor, DL16 6JQ.  Tel: 01388 816166 x4630.

A smashing idea but It seems to be aimed at the unemployed or retired community. I'd be interested if there were walks organised on a weekend, when I'm not at work. Perhaps if it catches on, then weekend walks will be organised.
I'm sure that there would be a lot of folks, who have sedentary jobs, who would be interested too but can't get time off during their working week.
The whole North Eastern area is steeped in history and there are bucket loads of beautiful walks to suite every level of fitness.

I've started doing a loop down to Rushyford and back every evening - going down the bypass route and back up the road - quite a relaxing walk, only takes half an hour. Don't know how enthusiastic I'll be when the bypass is open.

I think it is also a good way to get people from different spectrums of life to mix.

If you would like to see a weekend walking group started then I'm sure it could be arranged if you fancy giving it a push.  :wink:

Try the club at Hydro Polymers. Their club is open to anyone wishing to go along. They are very well organised and have some very experienced people. Barry is posting the itinerary here :

The Great North walk is on in a couple of months for anyone interested in walking 8 miles and raise money for charity.
The entry forms have been in the Northern Echo for a few weeks now.
