Ramblers encouraged to participate in rebranded walking club

Monday 16 May 2022


Public Health’s original walking programme - Walking for Health - is being relaunched as Ramblers Wellbeing Walks today (16 May) at Sausmarez Park.

The Ramblers have been associated with Walking for Health nationally since 2019, but this year they have taken total responsibility for the programme.

They've rebranded as Ramblers Wellbeing Walks to emphasise the wider benefits of walking, and to reflect the charity’s ethos of walking for all and at different levels of difficulty.

Public Health has been running a programme of health walks in Guernsey and Alderney for many years. Coordinator Yvonne Le Page said: “All our walks are specially designed to be approximately 30 minutes long and over easy ground, so they are ideal if you’ve never walked before."

“They’re a great way to meet new people and walk in good company, and to give your health and wellbeing a boost," said Ms Le Page.

She said that all walks terminate at a café so participants can enjoy refreshments and share a conversation.

“Everyone is welcome - whether you want to improve your wellbeing or used to enjoy walking but have lost your fitness, either way - you’re in the right place. The Ramblers Wellbeing Walks make it easier to start walking and stay active,” she said.

Walks organised by Public Health are held each weekday at different times around Guernsey and on Sundays in Alderney for free. 

Public Health is looking to recruit new leaders to help with the walks. There will be a training day on 30 June, anyone interested is asked to contact Public Health.
