Get active outdoors for adults

There are so many ways to increase your fitness out enjoying the countryside, from volunteering to Nordic walking; from learning a new skill to taking part in a healthy walking scheme; from taking up a new sport to discovering open spaces near to where you live - to mention just a few.

Surrey Health and Wellbeing Board webpages are a great source of information and provides lots of tips for improving your general state of health.

There are many Countryside volunteering opportunities available, join a growing number of adults who turn up week in, week out to lend a hand and improve their local greenspace.

For those recovering from an illness or just wanting to improve their lifestyle Healthy walking schemes may be the answer. Or if you fancy taking up cycling, then Surrey's cycling page is a good source of information.

Nordic Walking is a brilliant way to get fit and active. It's a common misconception that you have to be fit to try this.

Surrey Wildlife Trust run educational courses and of course are always happy to welcome volunteers to help in many ways, whether it's helping in conservation tasks or standing outside your local supermarket rattling a donation box. Either way you'll be making a big difference to this local charity.
