Let’s get up and get out by accessing local health walks!
MPT works with Active West Lancs GP Referral Officers and the Rangers service who lead weekly ‘health walks’ in Banks, Burscough, Skelmersdale and Ormskirk. The walks are suitable for beginners and those returning to exercise.
There is no need to book, but if you want support to access this activity, then your MPT officer can help you in accessing your preferred walks. You can also just turn up and enjoy the fresh air and exercise…and a well-earned ‘cuppa’ at the end!
In addition, twice a month, the Rangers lead some longer walks across West Lancs. These walks are between 4 and 12 miles in length. No booking is required.
