Paths for All is a charity which champions everyday walking in Scotland.
“A physically active lifestyle improves our all round health. Health is more than the absence of illness – it is a balance of physical, social and mental factors. Walking is a great way to improve our health – in all ways”
Paths for All (2015)
As I have completed my Walk Leader training with the above organisation, it is my pleasure to be able to lead community walks from our centre.
We would like to encourage as many people as possible to come along and join us next Thursday 5th October at 9.15am on our very first group walk. We plan to walk from the centre to Greenbank Gardens, where we will have a break, then walk back to the centre. The route has been risk assessed and is safe and accessible for buggies too.
As a family centre, at drop off and collection times, we often see parents, aunties, uncles, carers and grandparents, who are the important people that support your child and family. We want to encourage them to join us on our walks too, so please make them aware that if they have a spare hour on a Thursday morning, they will be made most welcome.
So what do you need to bring?
As we experience all 4 seasons in one day (sometimes in 1 hour), here in bonny Scotland, I would ask that you dress appropriately and bring a bottle of water. Plan to be outdoors for the duration of the walk, which will last approximately one hour. We will provide tea, coffee and biscuits as essential fuel at our halfway point!
You will be asked to complete a very short registration form on your first walk and if you would like any more information or have any questions please get in touch .
I hope to see you next Thursday 5th October at 9.15am.
Please contact the centre to let me know if you are coming along.
