Health Walks

On Tuesday 23rd March a number of SOS members led a Health Walk in Shotley, starting at The Shotley Rose Pub taking 1 !/2 hours to do a circular route. Nineteen people took part, some for the the first time, and a couple even came from Bury St Edmunds to join us. 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. Four members of SOS have just completed a training course and are now Qualified Walk Leaders for One Life Suffolk and not just in Shotley. Any walkers are able to stop at any time and will be escorted back. Four legged friends are welcome too!
