Throughout the year  there is a wide range of Health Walks across the whole of Suffolk.  The website includes links to walks arranged by region as well as for the Stepping Out programme:  all designed to keep people active.

The Ramblers have walks in our area, organised by local groups and sometimes from further afield.  One way to see what is on offer is to visit the Ramblers site: here you will find a map of what’s on within 10 miles of Clare.  You can pick your own location and calendar.
