Once of our longest running community projects, the Active Walks Sefton project started in 2011 by Sefton Council/Public Health team. NWUK have supported the programme since it’s inception which was before the full FREEDOM programme and on line booking came into place. The Team do issue NWUK FREEDOM passports.
By 2019 the project has 12 walks a week with average attendance of approx. 200 people per week.
The team which comprises of 1 NWUK Instructor 1 NWUK Community Instructor and 19 active walk leaders offer Free to join walks, Free to ‘Learn to Nordic’ and even Free use of Nordic Poles.
Lead Instructor Georgina Morton says
“I have now trained hundreds of people throughout Sefton to Nordic walk and I still absolutely love my job. It’s wonderful to see so many people enjoying and getting the benefits of such an easy to do form of exercise.”
