Description

We are looking for welcoming and enthusiastic volunteer(s) to lead short health walks in Cullen and Buckie, that happen to take in some simply stunning scenery!

Becoming a volunteer walk leader requires you to commit around an hour or so of your time weekly (but there is room for flexible dates!) and to sometimes complete a small amount of preparation & paper work for the walk.

Health walks encourage people who have not exercised for a while, find walking boring, or lack confidence to join a walking group because they think they will not be able to keep up. Walks are free, short, low intensity, safe and social and are usually followed by a cup of tea or coffee and a chat!

Volunteer walk leaders receive on-going support from the Health Walk co-ordinator, too.

If you are a people person, like to walk and the outdoors please get in touch.
