Volunteers are needed to help a new initiative that aims to improve people’s health and well-being with recruits being sought to lead health walks across East Dunbartonshire.

Health walks are an ideal way to keep physically active as well as being fun, free and sociable. They are low level and suitable for everyone who wants to become active.

A number of walks are already established which last between 30 minutes and an hour, but volunteers are needed to take on the role of walk leader or assistant leader.

Councillor Alan Moir, convener of development and regeneration, said: “Health Walks are quickly becoming established and are popular with people who want to become active as well as recovering from periods of ill health.”

To take part, volunteer or start up a walk, contact walk development officer Andy Lynch on 07919624722 or email
