North Somerset Council wishes to expand its health walks programme – but needs more volunteers to lead the hikes.
The scheme has been running for more than 10 years, with groups in areas such as Clevedon, Long Ashton, Nailsea and Portishead already up and running.
An estimated 6,000 people have enjoyed a walk as part of the programme and the council wishes to find more volunteers to ‘support the growth of this ever-expanding project’.
A training session for volunteers will be held at Redcliffe Bay Hall in Portishead on September 7 for people who wish to help out.
A council spokesman said: “You do not need to have an extensive knowledge of your local area or have an extreme level of fitness – you just need to be able to guide and support small groups, encouraging them to walk more.”
