Suffolk: Stepping Out in Suffolk

Walking for Health

Offer a variety of walks across the county for all ages and abilities, ranging from the countryside to more urban landscapes, all walks are led by trained volunteer walk leaders and are graded to ensure participants find the right route and pace for themselves. You do not have to have health issues to join our walks, as many participants simply join in to improve their wellbeing and meet new people. A quarterly programme is also available (hard copies can be found in all Suffolk libraries) and can be downloaded from the One Life’s Suffolk website.
