People in Kingsteignton and Shaldon in South Devon are already benefitting from new free walking groups launched as part of Teignbridge Council’s Walk This Way scheme, with another set to follow.
Walk This Way promotes healthy living and socialising, giving people regular free access to walks led by qualified leaders. Thursday, December 1 saw a new walk launched from Tesco in Kingsteignton. The easy Level 1 walk is perfect for new walkers and anyone with mobility issues, featuring mostly flat surfaces with easy access. Walks will depart at 9am from the front of the Tesco store on Thursday, December 15, January 5 and 19, and continuing every two weeks after that. Anyone can join in and there’s no need to book.
In January there’ll also be a special Parents and Pushchairs walk launching in the town, departing from Kingsteignton Health Centre. The walk is designed to be pushchair friendly, enabling parents to come along with babies and toddlers. Details of the launch date and times will be posted on www.teignbridge.gov.uk/walkthisway soon.
Meanwhile, in Shaldon walkers can meet every Wednesday at 10am at the memorial on the village green for a Level 1-2 walk with Volunteer Leader Diz Wright.
To get involved simply turn up on the day, or contact the Walk This Way Co-ordinator on 01626 215603 or [email protected] for more details.
