Health walks

Different levels of walking exercise


East Kent Health Walks (established by Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust)

The Singleton Health Walks from Singleton Environment Centre takes place every Friday morning.

The groups meet and sign-in at 9.30am, returning for an optional coffee or lunch and chat in the Centre’s Footprints cafe afterwards.

Health Walk meeting up

There are usually three walks in the local area:

  • one lasting up to one hour;
  • a longer walk of an hour and a half; and
  • a faster-paced walk of an hour and a half.

Walking boots are advisable for all walks. Each has a trained leader and, usually, a back-marker. You can choose a walk to set off at a brisk pace to work the muscles or a walk where you can talk comfortably and admire the view. In winter the walks are usually more urban-based to avoid seriously muddy tracks. Otherwise, our neighbourhood has plenty of country footpaths and nearby open-spaces including

  • Singleton Lake and Buxford Meadow,
  • Godinton House,
  • River Stour,
  • Ashford Community Woodland,
  • Great Chart Playing Field.

With organised events you are also guaranteed to have fellow walkers to keep you company, have a chat, and even give you peace of mind if you are nervous of venturing out alone.
