Walking for health
The Walking Wyre initiative is Wyre's contribution to the national walking for health scheme coordinated and supported by the Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support. Walking for health is England’s largest network of health walk schemes, helping people across the country lead a more active lifestyle, thus improving the mental and physical well-being of thousands of people.
Walking Wyre is an accredited health walks scheme and is run by Wyre Council. It aims to encourage people of all ages to get out walking to improve their health. The scheme will train participants in the art of walking, starting off with one hour walks on flat easy surfaces, progressing to one hour walks over undulating terrain, over a period of weeks, enabling people to progress to longer walks over time.
