Green Prescribing

Maldon and District CVS are working in partnership with Maldon District Council and Active Essex to support the local community with green prescribing activities to improve the physical and mental health of residents.

This is achieved by working with local community and volunteer sector groups to make more opportunities for local activities and ensure green spaces and parks are better utilised.

Getting outside and active is good for our physical and mental wellbeing and as part of this project we aim to locate and support free and low cost activities across Maldon District.

We also aim to help people enjoy our local green spaces through physical activity and social interaction.

If you are a community group and would like to share what you offer or you’d like some help to set up a new activity in your local green space, please get in touch on 01621 851891 or email justine@maldoncvs.org.uk

Walks for Wellbeing

There are many benefits to walking including both physical and mental health benefits. For example regular walking can:

  • Improve your muscular strength, from your leg muscles to your heart muscle
  • Help to control your weight (with the help of a healthy diet)
  • Reduces the cholesterol in the body
  • Release hormones like adrenaline, boosting the mood
  • Activate endorphins in the body, which helps to create a sense of wellbeing

Join us for a friendly low impact walk. Walks are very gentle and range between 1 and 2 miles. All ages and animals are welcome.

Our walks are in a central Maldon location, in Burnham and Heybridge.
