LOOKING for a way to get active and meet new people?
Look no further than a new walking group that departs the Prosperine Library every Wednesday at 8am.
Funding made available through the Get Out Get Active program made the new group possible and it's aimed at getting women and girls active.
Facilitator Leanne Knox said the group's mission was to support the community in getting active and living a healthy lifestyle.
"We would like to really support the over-50s with getting active in our walking club,” she said.
Ms Knox said the social aspect and helping the over-50s community to connect was also an aim of the program, "which will lead to long-term connections and improve their health and well-being”.
Cathy Okeefe had a go walking with the group on Wednesday and said she noticed the benefits.
"You are moving and it makes you feel good for the day and gives you a really good mindset,” she said.
