Dartford’s latest Health Walk has got off to a strong start as residents look to get active after lockdown.

The new walk on Dartford Heath is held at 10am each Tuesday and lasts around 90 minutes.

It is the latest Walking for Health scheme in the borough, joining similar events in Central Park, Darenth Country Park, Greenhithe and Swanscombe, all run by One You Kent.

Each one is part of Walking for Health, a national programme of free, short, accessible and social walks aimed at helping people to get the most out of walking for their physical and mental health.

Leader of the Council Jeremy Kite joined around a dozen others at the weekly walk on the Heath, which began on July 27th.

Cllr Kite said: “These walks are a great way of losing weight and staying fit, while also seeing some of the best natural spots around Dartford.

“I’d encourage anyone to come along and join the walks. They’re a chance to meet new people and stay healthy.”
