Experts recommend 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week for adults
but only about a third of us achieve this. A small amount of regular exercise can
significantly improve a person’s physical and mental health, well-being and confidence.
It will also reduce the risk and effects of many health conditions.
WfH is particularly popular with the over 55s and people with lower than average
levels of physical activity. However, please seek advice from your GP or nursing
staff, if you have a medical condition that is affected by physical exercise.
County support is given by Shropshire Council. Local support is provided by Lacon
Childe School, CoCo and CMFA who by improving the condition and access to local
footpaths has enabled Cleobury WfH to design a network of routes that avoid stiles.
WfH is supported nationally by the Ramblers and is England’s largest network of health
walk schemes, helping people to lead a more active lifestyle.
We hope that for many new walkers the short WfH walks are just the starting point
for greater enjoyment of being out in the fresh air and wonderful Shropshire countryside,
as well as improved wellbeing and lifestyle. CMFA has produced a series of longer
walking routes. – details of these can be found on the Walks leafletspage.
You may want to come along on the Parish Walks organised at weekends throughout the
year and led by CMFA members – details on the Parish Walks page of this website and
on notice boards around the town.
