As part of Waverley’s Walks for Health scheme (in conjunction with Places for People Leisure), Haslemere Walks for Health provide free organised walks with trained leaders around Haslemere and the adjacent countryside.
Following the recent retirement of Martin Osbourne, the two new co-ordinators are Elizabeth Holland and Susan Hitchen both experienced Walk Leaders. They hope to continue the good work Martin has done over the last 10 years and promote the importance of activity and exercise in helping to maintain good health. The social side of Walks for Health is also important helping people who live alone to socialise meet other people and have more interests.
Walks for Health has been very busy over the last year. As well as their usual weekly walks they have had an away day to the South Bank, a pub quiz, a barbecue and a Christmas lunch together.
They aim to vary the weekly walks as much as possible and are always looking for new members and new Walk Leaders.
Walks at the present time take place as follows
Tuesdays – leave from Haslewey at 2.30pm
Thursdays – leave from High Lane Community Centre at 1pm
Saturdays – leave from Haslemere Leisure Centre at 11am
There is a special walk for those who require a walk at a slower rate for half an hour on Tuesdays at Hasleway at 2pm.
All other walks allow for those who walk at a slower pace. The approximate time for each walk is one hour.
