Boston Community Health Walk at The Beonna

Every Tuesday at 1.30pm (followed by drinks and chat from 2.30). Year round

Join our friendly and relaxed group of walkers who set out from The Beonna at 1.30pm each Tuesday to keep active, make friends and get out and about. There are no attendance requirements – just come along on the dates that suit you, or even as a one off.

We all walk at our own comfortable pace and whether you want to walk 3 miles or just around the churchyard you will be made very welcome. All walks are wheelchair and buggy friendly and we welcome children (and dogs!).

We take a variety of routes, some in Benington and others in places including Freiston Shore, Wrangle and Fishtoft. The rain doesn’t put us off – if you’d like to walk we’ll walk. If not, we can have a coffee and a natter!

A cost of £1.50 covers refreshments and also gives you entry to all 10 health walks taking place that week in the Boston area. Just turn up on a Tuesday or for further information contact Alison at
