Greenwich Get Walking offers a wide range of free walking opportunities around the Royal Borough of Greenwich. There are various locations, difficulties and groups to choose from and the results are fantastic. Walkers have said the walks they attend have improved both their physical and mental health, they have found community and made friends.
Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) delivers Greenwich Get Walking on behalf of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Public Health. This programme is part of Ramblers; the biggest walking community in the UK, supporting people to access green spaces and live healthier lifestyles. Ramblers have developed a new website which showcases all our Wellbeing Walks in Greenwich. The new site will provide a better experience for those who sign up and will unite national organisations and local groups under the Ramblers brand.
This will bring the Wellbeing Walks into the Ramblers community; allowing us to reach out to new walkers and provide a bridge for existing walkers to find more challenging routes and new opportunities.
The good news is that everything we love about Greenwich Get Walking is staying the same. However, we would like to ask that all walkers ‘sign up’ to Ramblers Wellbeing Walks online. This means we can keep a better, more up-to-date record of everyone's details.
Sign up to Ramblers Wellbeing Walks with your details including your name, email address and home address, selecting 'Ramblers Wellbeing Walks Greenwich' as the preferred wellbeing walking group. If you, or any walkers you know, don’t have an email address, speak to your walk leader and they will be able to help.
After inputting your details, you will be taken to a page with an optional survey. We would really appreciate it if you could fill this in, as it provides us with useful information about who is attending our walks.
