Guided walks

The Active Together Walking Project has a whole host of different free walks that run weekly across Lancashire. They are open to all abilities and have different difficulty gradings on all walks to ensure you can select the best walk for you.

Walks are led by volunteer walk leaders, if you are interested in finding out when and where our guided walks are taking place then have a look at the what’s on page.

During the pandemic we had to cancel our walk programme however we are pleased we now have 4 daily walks from Monday 7th June and will be adding to this programme as restrictions continue to ease.

Bike Workshops

This free weekly session is every Thursday located in Stubbylee in Rossendale.  You will get the opportunity to repair your own bike or work on one provided through the project. Through the project you can learn new skills, meet new people and gain independence on your bike. This session can be booked here and is open to all but under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult/guardian.

During the pandemic this session has not been running but with restrictions easing we are currently planning for it’s return.  Existing volunteers will be contacted initially, if you would like to register interest in this session, please complete the contact us form below.

Gardening & outdoors

Our Community Garden Projects are great places to be to help improve physical and mental health.

The benefits of Gardening:

  • Builds physical strength and boosts your immune system
  • Helps you reconnect with nature
  • Spending time in the fresh air aids sleep and lifts moods
  • Develop an environmentally sustainable lifestyle
  • Great stress reliever

Our garden sessions provide opportunities to meet new people, spend time in a relaxing environment, develop personal and social skills while being physical active and mentally stimulated.
