Healthy walk to beat festive indulgence

FELIXSTOWE prom was the place to walk off the turkey, pud and chocolates during a special stroll for health.

FELIXSTOWE prom was the place to walk off the turkey, pud and chocolates during a special stroll for health. Members of the town's health walking group took part in a two-mile after-Christmas ramble to end the year and get rid of some of the excesses of the festive season.

The group walked from The Alex restaurant in Undercliff Road West along the prom, with some getting together afterwards to enjoy drinks and a chat.

Health walks are not just for people who have been ill and want to improve their exercise levels - they are for anyone who wants to take up walking.

People are encouraged to walk at their own pace and each walk is led by a trained walk leader.

The walks usually last less than an hour and all people need are comfortable shoes. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a lead.
