Our new Wellbeing Walks programme is out now! Come and join us on one of the many great walks that take place across a variety of beautiful locations.

Wellbeing Walks
is a national programme which encourages people to exercise for the beneft of their health. Walking is suitable for people of all ages and abilities. Formally known as 'Walking for Health', our Wellbeing Walks programme began in 2003 and is run by volunteers and supported by Havering Council.
 
There are more than 16 venues, 20 trained Walk Leaders and our health walks take place six days a week throughout the year. Walks range from 30 minutes (suitable for complete beginners) to 90+ minutes in length and are graded from easy to hard. There are also longer walks run outside of the Wellbeing Walks programme aimed at those looking for an extra challenge.
 
Hard copies of our brochure, as seen below, can be collected free of charge from a Walk Leader directly when you attend a Wellbeing Walk. You can also see the full programme online by clicking here.

Roy Roomes 002

We were deeply saddened to learn about the recent passing of Roy Roomes – a highly respected and much loved member of our Walking for Health/Wellbeing Walks team.

Roy helped found our popular Walks Programme here in Havering in 2003. Roy was an extremely passionate, enthusiastic and supportive man. He recognised the benefits of walking and then went on to encourage so many others to come along, enjoy the outdoors, learn about the fantastic green spaces we have available and make some new friends along the way. Many of our current Walk Leaders credit Roy in getting them to join the scheme describing him as welcoming, warm and inspirational.

Not only was Roy a brilliant Walk Leader, but he also set up many charity events and worked hard to raise money from our organised Charity Walks for the likes of the British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Macmillan Cancer Support, Diabetes UK and First Steps.

Without Roy’s efforts over the last 19 years the Havering Walks programme would not be as successful as it is today.

We send our heartfelt condolences to Roy’s family during this difficult time. He will be sadly missed, but never forgotten.
