More events have been announced for St Helens Council Ranger Service’s February outdoor programme.
There’s no end to the benefits of getting outdoors. A good walk done regularly can lead to significant improvements to your physical health and mental wellbeing.
And if you could spare a little time and elbow grease you could help care for the borough’s cherished parks and green spaces on a community litter pick.
There are opportunities for both, as the Rangers are back with a fresh series of health walks and litter picks through February.
Health walks all last around two hours at a fair pace. Litter pickers and bags will be provided to all volunteers at the litter picks.
Please wear stout footwear and warm clothing, and take along waterproofs with something to eat and drink.

Wednesday 5 February – Mesnes Park health walk, leaving from the park Pavilion at 1.30pm.
