A Reminder about Health Walks in Whitchurch. Every Wednesday, whatever the weather, two free circular Health Walks take place - one is at a medium pace for around an hour, the other is longer and brisker. Registration from 9.45 inside the Gill Nethercott Centre, for a 10 o’clock departure. Refreshments are available afterwards. Everyone is welcome to join this friendly group - come on your own or with a friend. Just make sure you dress for the weather and have appropriate footwear. There are 11 volunteer Walk Leaders who take turns to plan and lead the walks, so every week there’s something different.

The next Wednesday evening walk is on April 9th.
Meet at Old Basing Doctors' Surgery, Manor Lane, Old Basing RG24 7AE.
The Wednesday evening walk schedule is here (PDF file).

The next weekend walk...
Jennifer leads a regular one-hour walk from Oakley, usually on the last Sunday of every month. All these walks are at 2.15pm for a 2.30pm start. There is a handy coffee shop in Oakley. Oakley walks are at an average walking pace (not fast!). There is parking at each meeting point.
