Wokingham Health Walks - Laurel Park and Maiden Erleigh Lake

Easy health walk

If you enjoy walking, would like to improve your health and meet some new friends, the Health Walks are just what you need!

Every week there are 16 walks in the Wokingham borough led by trained volunteers. The emphasis is on brisk walking to improve your health, but don’t worry about how fast you can walk, we always have a leader and a back up so that everyone can walk at their own pace.

What you need to know before you walk

To make sure you're ready and comfortable we advise you:

  • Wear sturdy boots or shoes that are comfortable for walking. Some paths may be muddy or rough. In winter you will probably need waterproof footwear.
  • Wear lots of thin layers so that you can remove layers as you get warmer
  • Bring a bottle of water to keep hydrated
  • Use sunscreen and wear a hat when it's warm and sunny
  • Check with your doctor before walking if you have any medical conditions

When you're on the walk you should:

  • Try and keep between the two leaders unless you know the route well
  • Let the leaders know if you wish to leave the walk or go on ahead on your own
  • Let the leaders know if you have any health conditions which may affect you whilst walking
  • If you have any problems stop and wait for the back marker, all leaders have mobile phones and first aid kits
  • Let the leader know if you have any allergies or carry an epi-pen
  • Keep to paths and try to avoid livestock and dogs
  • Walk in single file and towards oncoming traffic when walking on roads 
  • Please note we have a 'no dogs' policy
