Suffolk Walking Festival 2021

SOS will be working with Suffolk County  Council to agree walk Schedule for 2021.

 What is a Health Walk?

The health walks are part of “One Life Suffolk” which leads “Stepping Out in Suffolk”, encouraging people to walk safely. Some of the walkers have health issues and these walks are designed to be easy for those who may not have taken part in walking before. Seven members of SOS are now Qualified Walk Leaders for One Life Suffolk. If at anytime during the walk a walker has done enough they will taken back to the start point.

Health walks are only a part of  the overall activites offered by the Wellbeing service recently launched by Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Council. In July 2020 the service is working closely with the Holbrook and Shotley practice.
