Step out Sheffield
Graves Leisure Centre Health Walk

Fridays: meet in the lobby of the Sports Centre beside the main doors, in time to register before starting to walk at 10:30 am.

Staff from the Clinical Assessment Centre at Graves Leisure Centre and volunteers from Step out Sheffield worked together to provide walks for Move More month in June 2017. These walks proved to be so popular that Step out Sheffield volunteers agreed to provide a walk every Friday beginning on 1st September 2017. Walkers meet just inside the main entrance to the Leisure Centre in time to start walking at 10.30pm. Mostly the walks take us under Bochum parkway, across the Norton estate and into Graves Park where there are numerous routes to choose from. The paths are all tarmac ones and therefore suitable for strollers, buggies and wheelchairs. Most of the paths we can choose have the advantage of being pretty level too. This ensures that these walks are particularly suitable for people who find Sheffield’s hills somewhat limiting. After our walk, we return to Graves Leisure and continue the conversations over tea or coffee. The café provides a wide choice of drinks and snacks and there is plenty of space for us to sit and chat. We are a friendly bunch and can assure you of a warm welcome whatever your level of fitness. You don’t need any special equipment to join us, just comfortable footwear and a waterproof or umbrella and, if you use one, a walking stick. Like all health walks, our walks are free so you have nothing to lose except maybe a few ounces of weight every time you join us! If you travel to the walk by car and there are no parking spaces left in front of the building don’t despair. We suggest you drive down the access road towards the new retail park, turn left past the entrance to the tennis centre and continue down to St Georges Football Academy. They have LOADS of parking spaces that you are very welcome to use, and the 3-4 minutes it will take you to walk back to the front door can count as your warm-up!!

Buses:     No's 1, 18a, 75 and 274.


just making sure we have a vertical scroll bar, otherwise it jitters sideways.
