Flintshire residents urged to walk their way to health this year

FLINTSHIRE and Denbighshire county councils are urging people to put their best foot forward and walk their way to better health in the new year.

Across Wales there is an active band of volunteer walk leaders who take short walks every week.

Volunteer walk leader Neville Howell said: “I have been involved in the scheme for more than 10 years now and have felt the benefit of regular myself and seen the benefit other people have had.

“It is amazing to see people’s health improving, weight loss and making new friends.

“As well as the walks there is a calendar of social events that are held which bring people together to do different things.”

Walks are held in St Asaph, Mold, Gwaenysgor, Flint, Buckley, Denbigh, Talacre, Dyserth, Caerwys, Halkyn, Rhuddlan, Lixwm and Llanasa.
