  1 April 2017 - Announcing the Belmont Rattler Summer walk Programme

Main contact number for Harrow Health Walks has changed

The coordinator for the Harrow Walking for Health scheme is now Ferhat Cinar, from the Council's Adult Health Improvement Team. 

He can be contacted on 020 8420 9526, if anyone has questions about any walk or any aspect of the scheme.

The Belmont Rattler Summer programme of walks starts again on Saturday 8th April 2017 and will run on the 2nd Saturday of every month through to October 2017. 

However, there may be some occasions when walk leaders may not be present, due to other commitments. On such occasions, if the walkers have sufficient knowledge of the route, we would urge you to walk as a Friends Group. For those of you unfamiliar with the route please see the map below.
Please Note : The South Harrow Walk on Easter Monday, 17th April AND the May Day Bank Holiday Monday, 1st May AND the May Spring Bank Holiday Monday, 29th May have ALL cancelled.

Of couse, if walkers wish to walk, as a Friends Walking Group, then feel free to turn up and head off by yourselves, but it's unlikely that there will be a leader!
