Continuing our guest blogs is 1Life’s Carly Togher who co-ordinates health walks in North Kesteven:
The North Kesteven Social Strollers Health Walk scheme operates within the North Kesteven District, offering 15 free and accessible health walks to local communities. All walks are led by our team of dedicated volunteer walk leaders; some of which are leading walks in this year’s festival!
We are very excited to be involved in the upcoming South Lincolnshire Walking Festival and are looking forward to sharing some of our fantastic walking routes with you. Regular Whisby volunteer walk leader, Brian Smith will be leading a walk at Whisby Natural World Centre on Friday 25th September. The walk includes circular routes with varying lengths, so all abilities are catered for. Walkers are encouraged to enjoy lunch at the Boardwalk Café at the Natural World Centre after completing the walk.
Nick Grimshaw, who leads multiple walks for the NK Social Strollers, is joining up his regular health walking routes to create an enjoyable 7 + miles walk around Branston and Heighington villages on Saturday 3rd October. There is no charge to this walk; however Nick is encouraging walkers to make a charitable donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Finally on Saturday 17th October, Sleaford health walk leader Shirley Thompson is leading a walk westwards along the River Slea towards its source. The route will then explore the allotments and pass through the cemetery before returning back along the River Slea. The walk will discuss the importance of the Sleaford Navigation and the water mills to the development of Sleaford.
