Ormeau Park hosts CWL Training


Walking In Your Community, in conjunction with the Inner South Health Project, hosted a Community Walk Leader training course at Shaftsbury Recreation Centre, Tuesday 22nd October 2013.

This was another well received event within the Belfast area with 10 participants opting to take part in a course that would allow them to become recognised Walk Leaders.

Camilla Reynolds, Health Outreach Officer at Shaftesbury Community & Recreation Centre commented “The Walk Leadership course has proven to be so valuable to our community members. This was the best Walk Leading Programme I personally have attended as it had a perfect balance of theory, practical walking and professional support from the two staff members present." Furthermore, when speaking about the programme, Camilla stated "I can now read a map and time walking routes! Amazing!"

Claire Overend, Development Officer for Walking In Your Community commented “Walking In Your Community is growing from strength to strength especially within Community organisations around Belfast. It already has exceeded expectations and we hope to continue this success in the future!"

For any Community Walk Leaders who have yet to complete their First Aid training, Walking In Your Community are running a number of confirmed First Aid training courses throughout November.
