New walking group’s first outing

The Thursday group of the Forfar Steps Tay Health programme held its first walk with an enjoyable ‘get to know you’ day round Forfar Loch.

The walk leaders have plans to explore routes around Forfar including Lour, Balmashanner and Lunanhead. This new walk gives the group the opportunity to run two levels of walk r offering something for everyone.

It is an initiative between NHS Tayside and Paths For All, runs health-led walking groups throughout Angus. Walkers attending the groups benefit socially and say they experience improved health and well-being from the gentle exercise.

Anyone interested in joining any of the walking groups should contact Frances Joiner on 01307 476495 or at for further information.
