CHAHP Walking for Health Update

The Caradon Monthly Walkers are going from strength to strength with the continued support of Mandy, Brigette, Mel, Jack and their team. Since the local government support stopped, the team have worked hard to keep it going and develop it into a must attend monthly event!

Another exciting local group is the ‘Walking for Health Group’ started over the summer. With the support of CHAHP* and Ann from the Patient Participation Group (PPG) at Pensilva Surgery, two new walk leaders have been trained. The walking routes vary in lengths depending on the abilities of those who attend. The group is taking a break over the festive season and will be back in the New Year where it meets every Wednesday morning at 10am at the Pensilva Surgery. If you are interested in joining a walk with the group or would like to know what date they will be back walking, contact Iain.

‘Liskeard’s Got Stile’, another walking group supported and promoted by CHAHP, has been ticking off many stiles on numerous footpaths in and around the town. This group, currently run as part of the Vital Spark programme, will be supported by CHAHP if the monthly events continue into the summer!

And lastly, CHAHP has been approached by Jill, from the PPG at Oaktree Surgery in Liskeard, wanting to set up a Walking for Health Group. To drum up support, the Surgery is having an open evening on January 23rd; any help or support from the other local walking groups would be greatly appreciated.

CHAHP will happily put those interested in helping (with the walking group or open evening) in contact with Jill. Many thanks to Brigitte who has already volunteered!
