Socialising and activities


Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier.

It's underrated as a form of exercise, but walking is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to be more active.

Regular walking has been shown to reduce the risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers.

If you feel you could use additional support there are a number of organised group walks available throughout South Tyneside.

For days and times as well as how to get involved, see Walking for Health: Health walk timetable
