Striding out for healthy walks

Derbyshire Dales District Council is striding out into the Hope Valley and northern Dales to expand its successful free Walking for Health programme.

New walkers and walk leaders are needed from the villages of Hathersage, Bradwell, Grindleford, Eyam, Calver, Tideswell and Youlgreave.

The Walking for Health scheme relies on local people who are willing to commit a few hours to lead groups after undertaking a one-day walk leader training course followed by basic first aid training.
