As an integral part of Cornwall AONB’s Wheal Buzzy project we have been successfully running a series of Bee Healthy walks in the St Agnes area.

The Wheal Buzzy Project is a unique project placing people at the heart of mining (solitary) bee conservation across the outstanding landscapes of the Cornwall AONB see http://www.cornwall-aonb.gov.uk/wheal-buzzy

As part of the Wheal Buzzy Project we are running a series of walks in some of the most iconic areas of the AONB, ‘Bee Healthy Walks’ based upon the framework of the walking for Health scheme.

A health walk is a led walk which can last between 30 minutes to an hour. Walking as part of a group not only aids physical & mental wellbeing, but also social contact and its associated support.

Building on the success of the our existing Bee Healthy walks in the St Agnes area we are recruiting volunteer walk leaders prior to rolling the walks out into areas around St Just and St Ives.

Do you enjoy walking, are you happy talking to people, would you be interested in developing skills to lead groups of walkers?

As a volunteer walk leader, you'll be helping people in your community to get active and healthy, experiencing some of the outstanding landscapes which Cornwall AONB has to offer.

We will provide full training and support for this role, all that we ask of you is that you can commit to leading a minimum of two walks between now and March 2020, and are available to attend a days (free) training in Penzance on June 14th 2019.

Volunteering is a great way to get to know people in your community, gain new skills and this opportunity can even be used as a part of your corporate volunteering.

For further information and to have an informal chat about the role please call Charlotte Goodship, Wheal Buzzy Project Officer on 01872 322307 or 07483169230.
