New faces welcome to join in with area walks


A WALKING group has restarted in Gosport, with familiar faces and new walkers getting involved.

Gosport Walking for Health hosts a walk on every weekday at different locations around the borough.

This includes from the Tourist Informatio­n Centre on Mondays, Forton Medical Centre car park on Tuesdays, Lee-on-the-Solent on Wednesdays, St George’s Barracks on Thursdays and Privett Park on Fridays.

All walks start at 10am except Lee on Solent which begins at 10.30am, and those new to walking are encouraged to take on the Lee-on-theSolent or Forton routes.

Coordinato­r Emma Kemp said: ‘It has been brilliant to get the walks back up and running. We are seeing lots of happy faces from the walkers, and I can't thank my dedicated team of volunteer walk leaders enough.’

Places are limited and walks are socially distanced, so those interested can phone (023) 9258 3836 on weekdays between 9am and 1pm to book a place.
