Health Walks at Wyre Forest
Worcestershire Health Walks aim to improving the county’s health and well-being by encouraging more people to become physically active through the simplest form of exercise - walking.
Run by Worcestershire County Council, the scheme introduces walking through a series of local, short group walks led by a trained volunteer walk leader, for people with a low level of activity or a long-term health condition.
The Wyre Forest Health Walkers meet twice a week outside the cafe and have two route options. Walks depart at 10.30am but if you are joining for the first time, please arrive at 10am in order to register. You will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and you will be able to discuss which walk would be best to start on.
Warm-up walks are on reasonably level ground whereas all the other walks go deeper into the Forest which will involve hills.
These walks are free to join and they can help to:
- Improve your overall fitness
- Provide a range of walks for those recovering from illness
- Provide company on walks for those who do not like walking alone
- Meet others, make friends and increase your social circle
