The Nordic walking sessions are part of the Lewisham Healthy Walks and Be Inspired Lewisham programme that is managed by GCDA. They are funded by Lewisham Council to provide free sessions for inactive Lewisham residents.
They have been delivering Nordic walking groups since 2011. and over the years we have trained co a friendly group of instructors and volunteer leaders who offer sessions across Lewisham. They all live locally and know that Nordic Walking is a great way to get active outdoors in their welcoming, sociable groups.
The project uses the NWUK/WALX management system in order to medically screen participants and manage safe booking of activities plus reporting.
