|Walking for Health|
|These walks are supported by the Ramblers, S.Staffs Council and Macmillan Cancer Support group and are also being organised on a national basis.
The scheme is intended to give people the opportunity to start walking, perhaps after an illness or simply as a means of starting to get fitter and healthier.
In addition it includes progressive walks for those who wish to walk longer distances from 2.5 miles upwards.
There are 2 walks available, catering mainly for retired people and initially during the weekdays not weekends.
Walking for Health Grade 1. This is suitable for people who have not been very active or have not walked much before, are looking to be more active. or are returning from injury or illness. They are intended to be up to 30 minutes on flat ground or gentle slopes with firm surfaces and no steps or stiles.
Starts from the Post Office at 10.00am.
Walking for Health Grade 2 Suitable for people who are looking to increase their activity levels. They are between 30-60 minutes and may include some moderate slopes, steps, and possibly stiles.
>Starts from the Post Office at 2.30pm
Unfortunately our regular walk leader is not currently able to lead the walks and we are awaiting news regarding the availability of a temporary, trained substitute. Watch this space for news regarding the recommencement of Shareshill's guided walks.

|This route is approximately one mile in length and being "circular" can be joined at any point along it. It passes the key buildings facilities of the village including the pub for those requiring a break!|
Most of the route is along pavements but be aware that there are two short sections of road without a pavement: Old Cannock Road and by the side of the school grounds in Saredon Road. Don't forget to walk on the right hand side facing any on-coming traffic.
The route also uses three short footpaths and the church driveway.
