With reference to Tompion Platt’s letter on walking (Wednesday 11th November) I would like to reiterate that walking has indeed great health benefits.

For those of you who would like to take up walking but don’t know where to start, come and join the Monmouth Walking Group.

We start at Monmouth Leisure Centre at 10am every Monday morning come rain or shine. There are four of us trained walk leaders and we cater for all abilities.

There are no restrictions, anyone can join us. You don’t even need to be a Monmouth resident.

There is no charge and besides the exercise, you will meet new people and enjoy the one hour walk in Monmouth. So now you have no excuse.

Look forward to seeing you next Monday.

Robert Morgan

(Walk leader)
