Congratulations to Andrew Jordan, leader of the Curry Rivel Healthy Walks Scheme, which has been running for over 3 years.
Walks for about an hour, 2 — 2.5 miles, along quiet country lanes and across fields around Curry Rivel and nearby villages. The walks are popular, providing an opportunity for people to walk for an hour and explore our surrounding countryside.
There are also Health Walk schemes in Langport, Shepton Beauchamp, Martock, South Petherton, Somerton and further afield, if you can't make the Curry Rivel walk.
The Health Walks are free, and are led by Andrew Jordan. They meet on Curry Rivel Village Green at 10.15am, on the 1st
and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. On the 1st Wednesday they usually walk locally around the village. On the 3rd Wednesday they drive a short distance and walk the countryside nearby.
The aim of the Health Walking scheme is to encourage people back into regular exercise by introducing a gentle walking programme. Health Walks are ideally suited to people wishing to walk slightly farther than they currently do, or who simply wish to meet and walk with other people.
