Gillingham Walkers

Walkers are Welcome has a long established walking group known as Gillingham Walkers. There are lots of benefits of walking as a group including meeting new people, having a good chat, discovering new areas of the town and above all having fun together. There is no charge or joining fee, you just need to complete a simple health questionnaire. The group was started in 2004 with initial support from North Dorset District Council and the North Dorset Primary Care Trust. Walking is free, fun and a great form of physical activity.
