ACTIVE travel project The Inverclyde Bothy is running a new weekly health walk in Port Glasgow.
It takes place every Thursday at 10am. The group meet in front of the west entrance to the health centre on Bay Street.
The walks last for up to one hour and are on flat, accessible routes. The pace and distance can be adapted depending on who comes along. Health walks are free and open to all.
Jenni Murray, health walk co-ordinator, said: “If you haven’t been active in a while and are looking for some support to get moving, or you’ve missed connecting with people and are looking for some company, our health walks are a great place to start. You’ll be sure to receive a warm welcome from our walk leaders.”
People going along for the first time are asked to book but after that they can then attend as and when they wish.
The Inverclyde Bothy also have regular weekly walks in Greenock (Monday afternoons and Friday mornings), Gourock (Wednesday mornings) and the Esplanade on a Wednesday evening at 7.15pm.
Each walk is led by a trained volunteer following covid-19 government guidelines.
Once a month, on a Tuesday morning, there is a longer walk (maximum two hours). These are aimed at those who wish to walk a bit further and who can manage some inclines.
A new location is chosen each time, and this month’s will begin at Wemyss Bay Train Station at 11am on 26 October. It will explore some of the hidden quiet streets, woods and shoreline before returning to the station again for a cuppa at 12.30pm.
