Walking for Health

Thursday, April 12, 2007

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn recently joined members of the Health Walk Scheme on their walk in Graves Park. The glorious weather conditions made it ideal for a stroll in one of Sheffield’s most beautiful green spaces. The Health Walk scheme in Sheffield is now in it’s 7th year and is run by trained health walk leaders; most of who are volunteers with a love of walking.


Meg said:


‘I really enjoy walking in parks and in the countryside, and I was pleased to be able to join walkers in my constituency during the Parliamentary recess. The walk’s in the scheme are not too strenuous and are manageable for all people. Everyone is encouraged to walk to their own ability and wherever possible to improve their general fitness through regular walking.


However, as members told me on the walk, it isn’t just about walking once a week; it has become a little community of people of similar interests who enjoy and look forward to each other’s company.’


There are 8 different walks in SW Sheffield area and sometimes the groups will meet at the regular meeting place and then get on a coach to walk in a different area.


-         Walks are every week except for Bank Holiday Mondays and the Christmas holidays.

-         You don’t need any special equipment.

-         Health walks are never more than one-hour. They are short walks designed to help you achieve your 30 minutes of exercise 5 times a week (the current Government recommendation).

-         Walks usually start and finish at a community centre or caf? and a big part of the involvement is the socialising over tea after the walk.


The scheme is run by Sheffield City Council’s Parks and Countryside Rangers Service and if you are interested in a Health Walk or would like more information contact the team on 0114 2039335.
