We’ve been out and about this month teaming up with Merthyr Youth Group to help set up and train their new walking group. Our Let’s Walk Cymru staff members have been advising them on everything walking. We’ve been talking about the health benefits, equipment and safety.
The group will be taking part in the Big Welsh Walk on 4-6 May where they will put their new skills into practice. Outdoor brand Silva has kindly donated some pedometers to help them along and we will help to devise a challenge to put them to good use.
“The Young People of Merthyr Youth are extremely diverse and are always keen to learn new things and come up with new ideas." said Kristian Churchill, founder of Merthyr Youth. "The walking group was put forward as an idea due to the many opportunities it offered the participants - keeping active, visiting new places and learning new things - all at the same time.”
