New Natural Health Service will help 3,000 Cheshire residents get active in the great outdoors

10 January 2018

We're encouraging Cheshire residents to get active in this New Year by joining a free new 'natural health service' as an alternative to gyms or fitness classes.
The service has unveiled a timetable of health-promoting, enjoyable group activities in eight locations across the west of the county. Sessions range from walking to horticultural therapy; from getting stuck in with practical conservation activities to more relaxing Mindful Contact with Nature. Each activity takes place within one of Cheshire West & Chester's inspiring green spaces. Both adults and children are catered for and all activities are designed to be welcoming to complete beginners.

There's a growing body of evidence that taking part in activities in the natural environment can have a significant impact on improving your health and wellbeing. Over the next three years the project is working to get over 3,000 people involved, aiming to increase their physical activity by 40% and wellbeing by 20%.

The new service is supported by Cheshire West and Chester Council, Big Lottery and The Mersey Forest.

Suzanne Londra, who manages the programme said: "If you've been thinking of getting more active this year, our Natural Health Service is a friendly and fun place to start. There's something for everyone no matter your age or ability. It's a great opportunity to get fitter, meet new people and enjoy some of Cheshire's best green spaces."

Full programme of activities

As well as the outdoor sessions, there are also opportunities to get involved with local conservation 'friends of' groups in the county.
