Covid-19 changes

In line with updated government regulations related to the November lockdown, all our Healthwalks are currently suspended.

In the meantime, and following on from our successful Spring Lockdown Walking Challenge, we are now holding a Winter Walking Challenge.

You can take part via Facebook, send an email to healthylifestyles@brighton-hove.gov.uk, or phone 01273 294 589 to find out about other ways to get involved.

Within the new government guidelines, taking part in outdoor exercise and physical activity, such as regular walking, is encouraged.  

Remember the safe walking rules:

  • only walk on your own, your household, support bubble or one person from another household.  See the latest Government guidelines
  • aim to keep 2 metres, which is 6 feet, away from anyone you pass
  • avoid traveling far to your walking destination and walk close to home where possible
  • consider taking antibacterial gel and a face covering if you are likely to be in busy places or to use a toilet or other facilities

About Health Walks

Health Walks are a great way for people of all ages and abilities to be active and improve their health. 

They vary from under 1 mile on the flat, to more challenging walks of up to 5 miles in local parks and green spaces. 

Dogs are welcome but hey must be well behaved and on a lead. 

Volunteering as a Health Walk Leader

Currently, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are not training new walk leaders, but we hope to restart training in the spring. We would love to hear from you in the meantime, so if you are interested in volunteering, please email healthwalks@brighton-hove.gov.uk Our Volunteer Co-ordinator will be happy to chat with you more about the role, and can add you to the waiting list for training.
