WALKABOUT Wrexham and Flintshire is inviting members of the public to take part in a health research programme.
To prove walking can aid weight loss and increase health and fitness, it will be tracking walkers for a year and using the results to secure the future of the walks.
Participants can take part in three ways: by completing a walk and filling in a log book once a month or every three months, completing a questionnaire or taking part in a basic walking and health assessment.
The assessments will take place in central locations in Wrexham and Flintshire.
The test involves a small cones course which people will be asked to walk around at their own pace for six minutes. All participants who take part will be provided with food and refreshments.
The programme starts on Monday, January 26, and Walkabout is keen for willing participants to get in touch as soon as possible. For more information on the scheme, call Natalie Edwards or Rachel Cooper at Groundwork on 01978 757524.
