A group in East Lancashire is leading guided walks to get people across the region moving.

And with May being 'National Walking Month', Active Together Walking, a project delivered by Newground Together, is aiming to get people of all ages and abilities out and about to share their love for local beauty spots.

With coronavirus restrictions over the last year bringing all group activities to a halt, the project, which is part of Together Housing's charitable work in the community, had to get creative.

Project officer, James Kenyon, along with volunteer leaders created videos of walking routes to help residents keep active during lockdown.

Now that restrictions are easing the group is looking forward to walking together again in real life this summer.

Mr Kenyon said: “With restrictions easing the future is looking brighter for Active Together walks.

"We’re really excited to start walking together again.

"We’re looking forward to re-uniting with members after our long break and hope to see some new faces who just want to give it a go."

Each walk is graded on difficulty, which allows everyone, regardless of ability, to sign up to a walk that would suit them.

The project covers various walking routes throughout Rossendale and Burnley with multiple walks happening at different times each week.
