Sonning Common Health Walks

The ‘Health Walks’ project was set up by Dr William Bird, a GP in the village of Sonning Common. The aim of the project was to improve people’s fitness, both in body and mind, by encouraging them to use their local countryside for walking. Together with Val Lunn, a local fitness instructor, Dr William Bird promoted the project which has now grown into a very successful scheme that has been adopted nationwide.
Timetables are available from the library the Health Centre and the Herb Farm, or on the website at www.sonningcommonhealthwalks.co.uk/timetable.
