The 'Out & About' Walks aim to provide opportunities for
local people to take part in physical activity whilst exploring
their local area. The walks are accessible to all ages and
abilities and led by qualified walk leaders.
The third of this year's 'Out & About' walks, arranged by
County Durham & Darlington NHS Foundation Trust will take place
on Friday 19th August. The meeting point is outside the main
reception building inside Crimdon Caravan Park, followed by a
scenic walk along the coastal footpath. The walk will
start at 10am, lasting approximately one hour, starting and
finishing at the same point.
Health Improvement Practitioner Lauren Lang said: "Walking is a
great way to keep fit and healthy and does not have to be too
strenuous to produce results.
"It is associated with a number of benefits and reduces the risk
of many chronic conditions such as; coronary heart disease,
strokes, high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes. So why not come
along and keep fit whilst having fun on our walks!"
