To coincide with National Walking Month, North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) is encouraging residents of all ages to join the national Rambling Wellbeing Walks network and take part in walks across the local area.

NNC is part of the national Ramblers Wellbeing Walks network, which provide regular group walks led by trained volunteer walk leaders and all walks are specially designed to be short (between 30 - 90 minutes) and over easy ground - perfect for beginners.

Walks organised by the council are held every week and you can find your nearest walk on the Ramblers website.

I really would encourage you to look online and find your nearest walk. Many people have recently found a new love of walking, due to the pandemic, and these walks offer a great way to meet new people, whilst giving your health and wellbeing a boost.Cllr Helen Howell, the council’s Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Sport, Leisure, Culture and Tourism
I am pleased that we are part of the national Ramblers Wellbeing Walks network, which means we are able to offer residents with around 30 walks across North Northamptonshire, all run by experienced leaders and like-minded walkers. Heading out together along tried-and-tested routes means enjoying, safely, the pleasures of walking together.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the council
