Run by Hinckley and Bosworth Council, the Hinckley Ramblers group are active members of the Walking4Health group and our  members help and assist in leading walks in all grades. We are a very friendly and supportive group and welcome all who feel they need and want a more active life. The national ‘Walking for Health’ programme offers health walks designed to encourage people to take regular short walks in their local communities, to benefit their health.
 Health walks are offered at lengths of 30 minutes, 60 minutes and 90 minutes and are usually on surfaced paths with no stiles to negotiate.
 So why not join in and start walking your way to better health?
