Amber Valley Walking Together

Walking is one of the simplest and most effective forms of exercise you can do, anyone can do it and it's very easy to get started. Amber Valley Walking Together work with individuals, groups and organisations to set up and manage local walks for health as part of the wider Walk Derbyshire model.

We are always looking for new participants and walk leaders so please don’t hesitate to join us!

Walking has so many benefits, from better physical and mental health, to reduced social isolation.
