Health Walks in Sedgemoor


Health Walks are designed to attract people of all ages who want to improve their health, meet new people as well as explore their local environment.

Health Walks in Sedgemoor

Somerset Health Walks Somerset Activity & Sports Partnership  

The aim of Somerset Health Walks Sedgemoor is to provide as many free, accessible, and well supported Health Walks across the district for residents to join. Health Walks are led by trained Health Walk leaders who volunteer their time to plan a variety of routes for all. The scheme caters for complete beginners as well as more intermediate level walkers and last between a minimum of 30 minutes and a maximum of approximately 90 minutes duration, often with the option of refreshments at the end.

Why not join one of the Health Walks and you could make new friends, relieve stress, and improve your physical and mental wellbeing. Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier. It is an ideal choice for people of all ages and fitness levels. Regular walking has also been shown to reduce the risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke, some cancers as well as helping to improve mental health.

Health Walk locations include Cheddar, Burnham on Sea, Bridgwater town and the villages of Nether Stowey and Steart and aim to cater for all. Coastal, buggy friendly, GP surgery supported, nature themed, urban, rural, weekday and weekend walks are all featured in the programme. For Health Walks attached to GP surgeries, it is important to note that you do not need to be a patient of the surgery to attend. They are open to all.

Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership (SASP) are working in conjunction with Sedgemoor District Council to deliver Sedgemoor Health Walks. To find a walk to suit your needs and the latest Sedgemoor Walks Programme follow the link to the SASP Health Walks Website or email Rebecca Squire rsquire@sasp.co.uk
