Alford Wednesday Walkers

The dedicated walk leader from health walk group ‘Alford Wednesday Walkers’ has been leading the walks successfully on her own for a number of years and we are now looking for someone to lend her a hand.
The walk takes place every Wednesday at 11.30am, meeting at the car park across from the Golf Club. The walk lasts around one hour, based around the town of Alford, with an optional social lunch afterwards at the Golf Club. Becoming a volunteer walk leader would commit to a couple of hours of their time each Wednesday and to sometimes complete a small amount of preparation & paper work for the walk. They would also have to attend a one day ‘Paths for All’ walk leader training course if they have not done so already. Walk leader training courses are free, organised locally and equip attendees with all the skills necessary to be able to lead a health walk.
This opportunity would best suit someone who is a ‘people person’ and has a passion for helping others improve their health. The social aspect of walking is really important to this long established group, who have been running for 9 years – so they would need to be friendly, adaptable and patient.
