A celebration of girls and women enjoying activity
NEW - we're delighted to work with Les Bourgs Hospice on some new 'The Daily Mile' walks, linking with the #30Walksin30Days challenge beginning on 1st April. Click here for The Daily Mile walks.
Our #GetOutThere and Walk This Way campaigns were devised with the aim of keeping people active as we dealt with the end of the first wave of COVID-19 and adjusted to a new normal. The campaign has since been expanded with a new set of walks around the reservoir.
There are currently 16 Walk This Way signs around St Peter Port and St Sampson and a further 6 walks around the reservoir, showing the distance, time and number of steps taken to and from certain locations.
All walks can be found on these maps:
The walks around the reservoir include St Saviour’s Church, the Fleur du Jardin Hotel and Driftwood Inn and are all 30 minutes or less. We hope some of these walks inspire you to get out and enjoy Guernsey’s lanes, plus keeping active. We know regular walking is linked to cutting down on stress, increased productivity and can help with getting a better night’s sleep.
There are many more beautiful lanes to explore around the island, use the Ruettes Tranquilles guide or app to discover a whole network of quiet lanes that give priority to pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders. Read more about walking in Guernsey here. Visit Guernsey also have a great selection of walks, where you can pick the time you'd like to spend and the level of intensity of your walk.
Watch out for our #GetOutThere on social media! Please share and like our posts and inspire others by sharing your experiences of adding a short walk to your day.
We're very grateful to the Co-op Helping Hands Fund which sponsored the signboards and Digimap who created the interactive map.
