Walk leaders inspiring people to boost their health in Kirklees

Posted 14th August 2023

Meet Colin, a friendly walk leader with Everybody Active for 10 years.

When Colin was made redundant, he knew he wanted to do something meaningful with his time. He’s always had a love of walking and, after some research, discovered the Walk Leader training and decided to give it a go.

After completing his training, he had the knowledge and the tools to design his own walks. He chose Oakwell Hall and the Elizabethan Manor in Birstall as the perfect setting to inspire people to boost their heath, surrounded by beautiful architecture and wonderful nature.

With 10 years of leading walks and giving people a health boost, Colin is now joined by about 15-20 each week. Some started as strangers and are now great friends!Colin also volunteers at Birstall Library where many of his walks start from. Why not pop in and ask him about his walks or how to become a walk leader?
