Banchory Walking to Health
by Aberdeenshire Health Walks Claimed ( Physical Activity, Social Activity )
The Banchory Walking to Health Group, with the help of trained volunteers, currently offers 3 weekly health walks -2 walks on both a Thursday & Friday morning, meeting at East Church at 9.55am and Between April & October a Monday evening walk, setting off from at East Church at 7pm. The Banchory Walking to Health Group, is a well- established group founded in 2008. Ten years on, the group is still running successfully and a couple of the original walkers who started the group still remain. We use a number of different walking routes, with some based around the town itself and others a little farther afield, which are accessed by car sharing. A health walk usually lasts up to an hour (a distance of around 2 miles), however with the help of our walk leaders, we are able to accommodate shorter and slower walks for those who require. Walks finish back at the Church, where we enjoy some social time over a cup of tea. We are also a Macmillan Friendly accredited project so are able to, with the assistance of a trained volunteer, welcome those affected by cancer to join our walks.
