Walking Club!

Our club meets every Tuesday, and participants walk pre-planned routes spanning approximately 3 miles. These walks are designed for physical well-being and to enhance social interaction, mental health, and environmental connection. Under the guidance of Anthony Davis, participants enjoy a safe, supportive, and enriching experience tailored to their needs.

For existing service users with various diagnoses and disabilities, our walking club offers a barrier-removing and inclusivity-embraced experience. This is the heart and soul of our walking club, led by experienced Life Skills Facilitator Anthony Davis. Our club is more than just a walking group; it’s a community where every step forward celebrates abilities, camaraderie, and the sheer joy of being amidst nature.

So far, our intrepid explorers have explored breath taking spots like Black Rock, Matlock, and Sherwood Pines. The beauty of these places is not just in their scenic views but also in the sense of achievement and belonging they instil in our walkers. But the journey doesn’t stop here. We are continuously mapping out new routes to explore the diverse landscapes of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, ensuring a variety of experiences that cater to the interests and abilities of our club members.

Our walking club offers numerous benefits, including:

Enhanced Physical Health: Regular walking improves cardiovascular health, flexibility, and endurance.

Mental Well-being: Nature walks have been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.

Social Interaction: It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet new people, form friendships, and enjoy shared experiences.

Connection with Nature: Experience the beauty and tranquillity of the great outdoors, fostering a deeper appreciation for the environment.

We understand that starting something new can be daunting, but in our walking club, every step is met with encouragement and support.
