Frecheville Health Walk 

Thursdays: Meet inside Frecheville Community Centre at 9.50 in time to start walking at 10 am 

The Frecheville Health Walk is a fun, friendly and supportive health walk based at Frecheville Community Centre.

Each week two walks are offered. One is a shorter, flatter, slower paced option, and the other is a longer walk at a quicker pace and almost always includes a hill or two. We do this to meet the needs of the walkers who come along to walk with us. All walks are led by fully trained walk leaders.

Once the health walk is complete walkers return to the Frecheville Community Centre for light refreshments (Tea & Biscuits).


The Frecheville health walk started in 2010 with local Ranger Tom Newman and a small cadre of local people with an aim of supporting the recovery of those who had suffered illness, isolation, injury or loss. The group was originally based at the St. Cyprians Church Hall. The continued growth of the walk (which included the training of a number of volunteer walk leaders) led to the group moving on to Frecheville Library where the group grew even further. The walk had to vacate the library when the group grew so big that when the walkers came back from there walks there was no room for anybody else. In 2013 the group moved to its current home at Frecheville Community Centre where we have plenty of room for walkers and their dogs.
