Walk 4 Health Toddington gets up and running
A new Walk 4 Health programme in Toddington has already signed up almost 70 walkers in its first 6 months, with 13 different walk routes on offer, thanks to the hard work of its volunteer walk leaders.
BRCC, the coordinator for Walk 4 Health Bedfordshire: https://www.walkingforhealth.org.uk/walkfinder/walk-4-health-bedfordshire , was approached late in 2016 by a volunteer from the Good Neighbour scheme in Toddington about setting up a health walk programme in the village. By early January posters and leaflets were on display and BRCC was receiving our first enquiries from prospective walk leaders.
During April we trained our first walk leaders who then checked out and risk assessed a number of suitable routes, and the following month saw the launch of the new programme. Six months on the walk leaders have produced an electronic newsletter, which you can read here:
