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, cater for all abilities and there is no need to book, you can just turn up at your chosen venue and join in. There are short beginners walks on Mondays for those who are just getting back into exercise. Alternatively 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.
