New walks have been organised by East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Walking for Health scheme.

Using Active Coast mile markers the walk will take place every Thursday morning at 10am along the Bridlington Promenade, starting from the cafe in East Riding Leisure Bridlington.

Heading north from the newly refurbished East Riding Leisure Bridlington towards Sewerby, walkers will notice the discs in the ground indicating how far they have walked.

There will be an option of doing a 30 minute walk or the slightly longer one hour walk covering either a mile or two miles along the Bridlington sea front. Afterwards there will be a chance to socialise in the leisure centre cafe.

Paul Peacock, healthy lifestyles development officer, said: "The mile markers weekly group walk is a great way of undertaking some activity in a safe and secure environment."Whether you are a keen walker or just getting back into it, everyone is welcome to come along."It is a great social occasion and a good chance to meet lots of new people. We hope people in the East Riding and Hull will join us for a walk so they can also experience the many benefits of being active."

The walk is free of charge and no specialist equipment is required. All are welcome to attend the walk. There is no need to book on to the event, however please turn up 15 minutes before the start of the walk in the cafe at East Riding Leisure Bridlington.

East Riding Walking for Health welcomes new walkers throughout the year. Over 60 walks take place each month starting from a variety of locations around East Riding of Yorkshire.
