New Walking Group on Tuesday mornings


This group has been set up to encourage local people to walk more steps on a regular basis. It doesn’t matter how many additional steps you can manage – every little helps.

Have you any idea how close you’re getting to 10,000 steps?

Why not find out by coming along to the Pavilion Café between 10.00 and 12.00 every Tuesday.  There will be a choice of walks, including short walks around the perimeter of the playing field, and walks around the village. Walk at your own pace and challenge yourself to walk extra steps each week.

For further information, please call Caroline at Ash-worth Time Bank on (01829) 751398 or email

Please wear comfortable shoes and clothing and  ask the advice of your doctor if this is something you haven’t done for a long time.

We are really grateful for the funding  received from Taylor Wimpey  to set up this group in September and to the Postcode Community Trust, a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.  This additional funding will enable us to continue with the group and look into other ways we can stay healthy in our own community.

Our ‘Library Sessions’ are a new addition to the range of social activities on offer, and these are proving very popular. They take place weekly, on Wednesday mornings from 10-12 in the Parish Rooms, Ashton Hayes. And if you think they are just about exchanging books, you’re very mistaken! Why not come along and try out some creative crafts with Gillian Forgrave, challenge the ‘Domino Dynamos’ to a game or two, or just enjoy tea, cake and a convivial chat – while you find out what else the Time Bank has to offer? Also, we now have Internet access in the Parish Rooms so if you need to research something online, or would like help with a problem, why not call in and draw on the expertise of our Volunteer Coordinator, Caroline Massos?

We welcome visitors to our office Monday to Friday 9:30 a.m. to 12.30pm.
