Walking In Your Community is pleased to welcome 14 new Community Walk Leaders following training in Antrim Castle Gardens on Thursday 21st September 2017.

During the training the group enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor sessions which enabled the 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."
