The Great Big Family Health Walk

Families in North Dorset are being invited to join The Great Big Family Health Walk which takes place at 3pm on Wednesday 1st August in Sturminster Newton. This free event will be led by volunteer Walk Leaders from the North Dorset Walking For Health scheme. The walk starts and finishes at the Station Road Car Park in Sturminster Newton and will follow the North Dorset Trailway. There is a choice between a 1 mile ‘treasure hunt’ with painted rocks hidden along the route for little ones to find and a 2 mile ‘bug hunt’ provided by Dorset County Council’s Countryside Rangers Team. The 1 mile route is buggy and wheelchair-friendly. Parents, grandparents and any other family members are all welcome to come along and join in the fun! The North Dorset Walking For Health scheme offers weekly health walks in Sturminster, Shaftesbury, Gillingham, Blandford and Sherborne. For more information about the scheme search online for North Dorset Health Walks or contact Keith Harrison, Scheme Coordinator on 07825 691508.
