The Community Partnership joined in with the Countryside Trust’s ‘Walk in the Park’ walking event in Arrochar on Wednesday the 20th June 2018 as part of Paths for All ‘Big Fit Walk’ campaign.
What is a Big Fit Walk?
The Big Fit Walk is Paths for All’s annual campaign that takes place throughout June with the simple aim of getting communities more active. It is an opportunity for people to come together and celebrate the benefits of being active. It is good for physical health, mental well-being and helps to create social links. A walk is an easy, free and enjoyable way to keep active!
