Volunteers wanted for leading walks
PUBLISHED: 16:17 04 January 2011
MORE volunteers are needed to guide walkers through their paces in North Somerset.
NHS North Somerset is running a Health Walks programme to get more people fit and active in the district.
Since beginning in 2006, it has attracted 3,000 walkers and has a committed bank of 70 volunteers.
But the body is now looking for more volunteers to lead an increasing number of people joining the scheme.
Project co-ordinator Liz Lansley said: “We are looking for people with a love of the outdoors who want to encourage others to enjoy the pleasures of walking.
“We are particularly interested in hearing from people who have found walking good for their health as we aim to attract people who may have a health condition that would benefit from walking.”
Anyone who can help should turn up at a training session at the Badger Centre in Wadham Street from 10am-3pm on January 19.
