People are being encouraged to put their best foot forward and become a walking group leader.

England Athletics, Public Health England and the City of Wolverhampton Council are looking to recruit a number of Brisk Walking Group leaders as part of a pilot programme to encourage more residents to get active.

Brisk walking is simply walking at a quicker than usual and at a pace that gets the heart pumping.

John Denley, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Director of Public Health, said: "This is a great opportunity for people who are motivated about their own health and wellbeing, able to motivate others and want to learn new skills to help other adults get more active by leading brisk walks.

"The successful candidates will be given free training and be expected to deliver a minimum of 2, 12 week brisk walking programmes in the community to receive the qualification.

"If you are passionate about helping people to become and enjoy being active, then please get in touch."

For more information, please email or call Public Health on 01902 551106.

Training will take place at The Hub at Ashmore Park, Griffith Drive, on Saturday 13 July from 9am to 5pm. Individuals who want to receive the training will need to be free on this date.
