The walks tend to last up to 1 hour and 30 minutes with suitable clothing and footwear advised.

If walking isn’t really for you then perhaps you might like the idea of beginners netball. Held Thursday evenings from 6pm to 7.30pm at Ash Green Primary School, Lower Site. Just £2 per session to cover the cost of a trainer (Any money left over will be reinvested into the Mixy Marchers fund for further resources and the development of other physical activities in the area).
