Walking for health groups
These groups undertake friendly, sociable walks across Charnwood. They are up to around an hour in length and free to attend. The walks are run under the Walking for Health scheme and led by friendly volunteer walk leaders.
We have regular walks in Barrow Upon Soar, Loughborough, Mountsorrel, Quorn and Sileby and have a new walk starting in Shepshed from January 23. Details can be found in the leaflet attached below.
