Fit for Life Walking Group
fit for life

Fit for Life walking group was started by the Monmouth County Council in March 2013 and focuses on the those with reduced walking capability and their friends and carers. It takes the form of a one-hour walk on flat ground (fields and pavements) in and around Monmouth.

The ‘Fit for Life’ group meet on the grass just behind/beyond the car-parking area outside Bridges for a 10 am start on Monday mornings. We are covered by Bridges’ insurance arrangements, and four of our walkers have undergone a one-day training session and qualify as walk leaders.

There is no fee and no long-term commitment — the group meets every Monday including bank holidays, and if you can’t make it or don’t feel like walking on that day you don’t have to let anyone know — at 10 am the group moves off with whoever’s there by then.

Afterwards many of us adjourn to the nice cafe area in the Monnow Vale Hospital.

The walks are a good way of getting to meet people, and also a great way to familiarise yourself with parts of Monmouth that you may not have visited before!
