Active Birkby Club Evening Walks
Join us every Thursday in May for a gentle evening stroll exploring the green spaces of Birkby from 7 - 8.30pm. Come along, stretch your legs after tea and set yourself up for a good night’s sleep. Please wear clothing and footwear suitable for walking.

Regularly taking part in an activity like walking is so good for you. It can burn calories, lower your blood sugar, ease joint pains, boost your immune system and it also gets you outside and into nature which can give your mental health and wellbeing a boost too!

You can walk pretty much anywhere that has a path, but to help you get started, here are a couple of our favourite walks along the Grimescar Valley:
