WIYC Welcome New Community Walk Leaders

Jun
8

On Thursday 1st June Walking In Your Community ran Community Walk Leader Training in Belfast Activity Centre for community leaders and volunteers from Co. Antrim and Co. Armagh

This successful training day (despite the rain!) enabled participants to learn the necessary skills needed to lead short, safe and accessible walks with people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Topics covered during this training day included navigation and map reading skills as well as some useful information to set up and run an active walking group.

Walking In Your Community Co Ordinator Claire Overend commented following the event "It's great to see our new Community Walk Leaders leave feeling confident and keen to start walking groups in their local community."
