East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s programme of Health Walks has been re-launched in line with government guidelines to encourage people to get out and about and enjoy the natural beauty of the area, whilst staying fit and healthy.

Walks are short and over easy terrain and are open to everyone, but are especially aimed at those who are least active.
