Walking In Your Community is encouraging the community to join together and get walking in Coleraine this summer.

Downhill Forest, Benone Strand and Mountsandel Wood are only a few of the magnificent walking trails right on your doorstep.

To help encourage local people to get walking in their local area, Walking In Your Community is running a free Community Walk Leader training course at Learmount Forest on Saturday, August 2.

. Leaders and volunteers from community groups and organisations are being encouraged to come along to this event to gain the essential skills needed to lead short, safe and accessible walks with people of all ages and abilities. This scheme has already been run successfully across all Northern Ireland and now it aims to get the people of Coleraine outdoors.

There are many health and well-being benefits to walking and everyone can take part in this kind of exercise.

If you have an interest in starting up a walking group or if you simply would like to join an existing group in your area, this scheme is perfect for you! With a limited number of spaces make sure to book your place on this Community Walk Leader course now!
