Free walking group launched at Helsby

THE Frodsham area is renowned for walking – but now a free and friendly walking group has launched in Helsby, meeting outside the Old Bank Tea Rooms at 10.30am every Thursday for short walks.
The group is open to all and is led by trained walk leaders who lead the group at a steady pace around Helsby, walking for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. The group finish with a social get-together for refreshments, for anyone who would like to join them.
People of all abilities are invited to join the walk as well as anyone who may be interested in volunteering on the walk.
The group is part of a new walking initiative co-ordinated by the Total Environment team at Cheshire West and Chester Council in partnership with The Rambler’s Association, aiming to bring people together and to get outdoors and active, improving health and wellbeing.
Council leader Louise Gittins said: “We have a number of similar walks across the borough, the team are always looking for people to help lead and assist the walks. If you are interested in becoming a walk leader or walk assistant full training and guidance is provided supported by the Ramblers and our Rangers.”
