Baildon Walking for Health Group
Champions Show the Way is a well established Walking for Health scheme within the Bradford District. People who do not walk very often, or have long-term health conditions, are particularly encouraged to join the walks.
A Baildon group was set up in April 2005 and has grown steadily from just 2 initial walkers to over 40 each week. The social aspects of the walks are just as important as the physical and many new friendships have been formed & old acquaintances renewed. In addition to the weekly walks led by Peter and Yvonne Kierman, social events have included 2 minibus trips each year and Christmas lunch at Baildon Golf club.
All the walks are free and people do not need to register in advance – they just turn up at the corner of Springfield Rd/Westgate/West Lane at 10.45am on a Wednesday in stout footwear. After the 50 minutes walk most people adjourn to Wesleys cafe for a welcome cup of tea or coffee. Further details of the walk, and other Champions Show the Way activities, can be obtained by ringing 01274 321911
