Shorter walks in Clevedon will be offered to get people active.

Starting from next month, the health walks group in the town will provide the half-hour route, as well as its regular hour-long walk.

The group hopes it will be an ‘ideal opportunity’ for those who wish to get out and walk but find the hour walk a bit too much.

The walks will start from the town’s bandstand, in Elton Road, on July 3, August 7 and September 4.

Walk leader Gay Maxwell said: “If there are enough walkers the shorter walk will become a regular fixture.”

Volunteers will also be on hand to support all those who attend.

For more information about the walk, call North Somerset Council’s sport and active lifestyles team on 01275 882731.
