If you fancy taking the first step to becoming a healthy walker, then High Peak’s Walking for Health programme is for you.

High Peak Borough Council co-ordinates walks across the borough, and is keen to recruit volunteers interested in leading walks and sharing their enthusiasm with other walkers.

A training day will be taking place on Monday January 19 at Buxton Town Hall, starting at 9.30am, and includes a short walk and information on route planning, health issues and risk assessing walks.

For more information, and to register your place, email mary.jones@highpeak.gov.uk.
