Free guided walks to get elderly residents out and about in Basingstoke
ELDERLY residents can now explore the best of the borough with a spring in their step now that the council has teamed up with the Ramblers Association to offer free guided walks around Basingstoke and Deane.
Walks are available in Basingstoke, Whitchurch, Tadley, Oakley, and Kingsclere. All are led by a trained leader and have ‘back marker’ to ensure no one is left behind.
The scheme is a partnership between the council, Ramblers Association, and Macmillan Cancer Care.
Cabinet member for partnerships Cathy Osselton said: “Our aim is to support the work of the health service by providing activities that enable people of all ages to improve their fitness and wellbeing, both exercising and socialising at the same time.”
