Pendle Leisure Trust is encouraging everyone to get up and active in their local area and take little steps for big gains with some short health walks.
The Trust is offering a programme of short health walks suitable for all ages and abilities. Whether you want to take up walking, get back into walking after a break or have been affected by some health conditions, short health walks are a great place for anyone to take those first steps.
Setting off from meeting points around Colne and Nelson, the walks are 30-60 minutes long and have been designed to help you improve your general health and well-being in a friendly local setting.
Clive Escreet, Pendle Leisure Trust’s Healthy Lifestyles Manager, said: “We’ve developed this programme of free walks for anyone of any ability to come along and get into walking to improve their health.
“The walks set off from local health centres and parks and are at a steady pace in flat areas. Why not bring a friend along to try them out?”
The meeting points are:
And if you’re ready for a slightly harder walk, there’s also a 60 minute health walk setting off from Pendle Leisure Centre, Colne, every Monday at 1.30pm, which introduces some inclines and may be off road at times.
Another activity is Nordic Walking, or walking with poles. These walks currently take place Thursday mornings, setting off from Pendle Leisure Centre, Colne, at 11am and poles are available for anyone wanting to give it a go.
For all of these walks, there’s no need to book, just turn up!
