Tonbridge and Malling BC’s health walks have been rebranded as Walk 4 Wellbeing. 

 They currently have 8 walks across the borough and I have identified some communities that are not adequately served by these free group walks. 

They would love to be able to set one up in the Wouldham area if possible, but that would rely upon them being able to recruit and train some local volunteers for it.
