Every Wednesday, whatever the weather, the Walking for Health group, led by volunteer walk leader Jenny Weatherill meet at Yorkley Village Hall at 10.30 for a walk. The Yorkley health walk is one of 14 walks across the district from Hartpury to Sedbury, the nearest to Yorkley being Parkend, Bream and Lydney. They are free and suitable for almost everyone. The walks are a great way of getting fit and staying active, as well as a good way to meet new people and make friends. Jenny’s walk, like most of Walking for Health walks, ends with a coffee and a chance for a chat. To find out more about Walking for Health, and to find a walk near you, go to www.walkingforhealth.org.uk .
In the new year, when the hall is closed ready for rebuilding, the walk will start at Yorkley Star Cricket Club.
