A local walking group are calling on residents in Almondbury to put their best foot forward and join in a health walk around the area on Sunday 29 March.
The walk is part of the ‘Pathways to Health’ project run by South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and is part of the Trust’s nationally acclaimed Creative Minds initiative.
Working alongside colleagues from Kirklees Council and Creative Minds partners Support 2 Recovery, the Pathways project aims to help people living in Kirklees suffering from anxiety or low confidence to take part in a group and enjoy light exercise.
The group also offers participants the chance to get involved in a series of projects based at the Tolson Museum and local libraries that aim to develop social skills and integrate isolated individuals back into the community.
Danni Wild, social worker at Pathways said, “With spring just around the corner this is a great opportunity to meet new people and take in some fresh air. The route can get muddy so make sure you wearing suitable footwear!”
“The group is a great example of how beneficial exercise can be in promoting mental wellbeing and we’re really looking forward to seeing lots of new faces.”
Setting off from the Tolson Museum at 12pm the route will feature a lap of the Almondbury area and will last around 90 minutes. The group will then meet back at the museum for soup, sandwiches and cake, as well as an exhibition of the work done so far by the group.
