Walking for Health in West Berkshire

Just turn up and join in!


The WBC Walking for Health scheme offers regular, led, walks for people of all abilities. The walking groups are friendly, welcoming and empowering, and a great opportunity to explore the outdoors, discover new places and meet new people. Specially trained volunteers are on hand to provide encouragement, support and make sure no one gets left behind. It’s easy to start walking. Walks are free and easy, ranging from 30 to 90 minutes, so they can easily be fitted in as part of your everyday routine. Some walks stop for coffee afterwards in a nearby cafe, a good opportunity to socialise and relax after the walk.
