Would you like to join our Dementia Friendly Walks For All in the Westmorland Dales or do you know someone who would like to take part or even volunteer? Please spread the word!

These easy guided walks will enable people to discover the beautiful landscape of the Westmorland Dales with a friendly group of volunteers. The walks are likely to take place on Tuesday mornings from 10:30 am. The walks may be 1-2 miles long around the quiet villages of Maulds Meaburn, Orton, Great Asby, Shap and other locations. They will give walkers the opportunity to take in a little of the areas cultural heritage and get closer to wildlife. If these walks are well received, we will provide guided walks across the area offering a gentle strollers group and a striders group for those wishing to explore further. We are hoping to deliver these walks from a local church, cafe or village hall with access to disabled toilets and somewhere to sit, maybe tea, coffee and cake if people are keen! 

We hope these walks will provide opportunities for people living with dementia and their carers to get outdoors and enjoy nature, socialise and improve health and well-being. 

Please contact Nicola Estill to find out more, [email protected] or telephone 07814 305748 to register your interest initially.

We'll provide more details of about dates and events once we have a better idea the the level of interest in these walks both for people wanting to attend and anybody who is interesting in volunteering. Please do let us know if these walks are of interest to you by emailing or calling Nicola directly.
