An award-winning health group is seeking volunteers to join its ever-expanding team.

North Somerset Health Walks programme is looking for individuals who enjoy being outdoors, like helping others and those who wish to be more active in their spare time.

Volunteers do not need to have an extensive knowledge of the local area or a high level of fitness.

A free training day will be held in Clevedon on June 14.

They need to be able to guide and support small groups and encourage people to be more physically active.

The ever-expanding project won an Inspiration award at the Ramblers Volunteer Awards 2019.

It was recognised that the initiative continues to thrive because of the enthusiasm of the dedicated volunteers.

Since launching 11 years ago, more than 6,000 people have enjoyed the programme.
