On the 8th March over 550 women took to Exhibition Park for the 2017 launch of This Girl Can in Newcastle.
Walking for Health is a national scheme to get more people walking. Active Newcastle are setting up the scheme in Newcastle and have already began to train volunteer leaders, set up new routes and are planning a launch event in the very near future.
Our first set of volunteers took part in a walk leadership course at Jesmond Dene and we will be holding another training day in January (date: tbc). As a walk leader you will learn how to lead a group effectively and get guidance and support to set up your own walk or to lead an already existing walk. For more information please go to www.walkingforhealth.org.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com from the Active Newcastle Team.
We are also launching new walks across the city. To see what walks are available now and to keep up to date with new walks go to:
