A good walk is so much more than just stretching your legs. It's a chance to unwind, meet new people and discover nature on your doorstep.
Malpas Walking for Health Scheme started in April 2014, offers a simple and free way to get out into the fresh air, be more active and meet other people in a friendly and supportive group.
The present scheme, supported by Cheshire West and Chester Borough Council in partnership with The Ramblers, covers walks in Malpas.
The walks which take place on Tuesday's and Thursday's are led by a team of local enthusiastic volunteer walk leaders.
Walk times vary witha shorter walk (approx. 45mins) on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday and a longer walk (approx. 60/80mins) on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month.
All walks start from the Malpas Community Church, High Street, Malpas at 10:15 am.
There are always options to do shorter routes depending upon individual abilities at each session.
We finish our walks at the Community Church with hot drinks, biscuits and a lively chat.
If you are interested, do join us on one of the walks detailed below.

'Fresh air; open spaces, the conversations between different friends and meeting new walkers'.
'I enjoy the walking and meeting the people in the group and socializing in the countryside'.
