Let's Walk Hinckley and Bosworth
Walking for Health - what is a health walk?
The national ‘Walking for Health’ programme offers health walks designed to encourage people to take regular short walks in their local communities, to benefit their health.
Health walks are offered at lengths of 30 minutes, 60 minutes and 90 minutes and are usually on surfaced paths with no stiles to negotiate.
So why not join in and start walking your way to health?
