Walking for Health:

Walking for Health is a free scheme aimed at encouraging people to take up walking as a way of improving physical health and mental well-being.

It is a series of free guided walks for all ages and abilities, aimed at anyone who has an interest in walking or wants to slowly introduce exercise into their daily routine as part of rehabilitation from illness.

There are a number of weekly walks in all areas of the East Riding.
