The ‘Walking for Health Initiative’ is part of a move to improve the Nations health by walking.
There are many such groups in Nottinghamshire, with trained and insured leaders,
who take parties out for a gentle 2-6 mile stroll in their local area.
Details for many of these groups are listed here and you can contact the leaders for further information.
On your first walk please arrive early to complete a registration/health form.
Dogs on leads and children are normally allowed, but check – NO dogs at Rushcliffe Move and Mingle.
Bring any medication and inform the leader if in any difficulty during the walk

The Cambridge research is quite an eye-opener.
Even more is the research made public at the end of 2016 that about 80% of adults in the 40 to 60 age bracket don’t look after themselves by taking sufficient exercise.
Lack of exercise is worse for you than obesity, it is believed now
Some walkers with the Mansfield ‘On Your Doorstep’ health group have improved so much they are joining the regular Ramblers!
These Health Walks are an ideal introduction to group walking if you have never tried it before. Local walks at an easy pace, trained leaders and an amiable group
around you – it becomes a comfortable, friendly way of recovering or improving your health.
Research shows that you can reduce your risk of contracting any one of about 35 serious diseases too.
Think about it. It’s got to be worth it to you!
