Cornwall - 2014
The SABRE walks programme has a choice of two or three led walks each week in Surrey and South East England. Typically we have around 16 or more people on each walk, come rain or shine. In our programme you'll find everything from short easy strolls up to energetic 12 mile hikes. We organise social events and walking mini-breaks around the UK and abroad.
Lunch in the sunshine
Many reports show the benefits of walking including a report published in the Ramblers “Walk” Winter 2013 magazine which identifies 20 health reasons for regular walking including a reduction of 35% in the risk of developing heart disease and related strokes, a reduce risk of dementia, improved sleep quality, prevention of diabetes and a reduction in the risk of getting some cancers and improved chances of surviving other cancers.
