Epsom & Ewell Borough Council are providing a free 12 week social diabetes walking group in Epsom & Ewell to encourage those with diabetes to be more active and see the health benefits. The ultimate aim is that participants’ weight and blood pressure are reduced, we will be measuring weight and blood pressure at week 1 and 12. Following the 12 weeks participants will be signposted to the Walks for Health that exist in the area, as well as, to other activities so that activity is sustained.
The walks will be led by an experienced and friendly walk leader, who is insured and first aid trained, the walks will last for up to 50 minutes in the local area. The walks will accommodate people at different paces and there will be regular breaks for those that need them.
You should be able to commit to 2 walks a week (Tuesday 11am-12pm and Thursday 2pm – 3pm) for 12 weeks (May 28th to 20th August).
If you would like to register please contact the Leisure Developments Team before 24 May on email@example.com or 01372 732 000.

Epsom and Ewell health walks
In April 2011, Epsom and Ewell health walks became an independent voluntary group with its own Committee and Constitution. The group is now overseen by a number of walk leaders and volunteers. Walks are free and there is no need to book. You can just turn up at your chosen venue and join in. Epsom and Ewell health walks cater for all abilities. There are short beginners walks on Mondays for those who are just getting back into exercise. There are also hour long walks on Wednesdays and Sundays for anyone who would like to walk a little further and at a faster pace.
