The Healthtrainer team here at Public Health at the council are a fantastic free service offered to everyone in Brighton & Hove who would like to improve their health or make a positive lifestyle change like giving up smoking or eating better.  They work one-to-one with people, helping them set achievable goals and supporting them as they try to achieve them.

We are now having monthly ‘meet the Healthtrainer’ Healthwalks, where a  Healthtrainers come along to one of our regular walks, gives general advice, but through whom you can also sign up for a one-to-one consultation.  If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, here’s the details of the next few walks:

  • Meet the Healthtrainer Preston Park: Monday 7 November, meet at the Rotunda Café, 10am.  1.5 miles
  • Meet the Healthtrainer Seafront: Tuesday 6 December, meet at the entrance to Palace Pier, 10am. 1 mile
  • Meet the Healthtrainer Brighton Women’s Centre (BWC): Wednesday 8 February, meet at BWC, 72 High Street, Kemp Town 11.30am.  2 miles (please note this is a woman-only walk).

September walks and parks consultation

From Corinna Edwards-Colledge –

Just wanted to let you know quickly about two lovely free special Healthwalks coming up this month – including one of our lovely Art Healthwalks tomorrow at Stanmer.  As ever you can just turn up to either or both if you are interested.

Also, if you care about the future of our parks  and green spaces you might want to have your say in the current parks consultation in our city.  It has been put together to look at future options for our parks and open spaces as further cuts to council budgets by central government are absorbed: www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/parks-consultation.

Free special Healthwalks in June

From Corinna Edwards-Colledge –

Hello walkers

June is packed with many fantastic and free special Healthwalks to get you out and about.  Details for all of them are below and they are all walks that you can just turn up to if you are interested.

June Healthwalks

I also wanted to share with you some recent testimonials from our walkers.  It is really amazing how much something like a simple walk in company can impact on a person’s health and wellbeing:

‘I have made many friends. My husband died a year ago and the Healthwalks have really helped me in my loss.’

‘The leaders are fantastic and they are part of the reason I continue with the Healthwalks. The history of the areas when walking is also interesting’

‘I have gained enormous amounts of friends, and I meet up with walkers outside of Healthwalks!’

‘I suffer from asthma, but I do enjoy all the walking as often as I can. I also think it does and has improved my health’
