Hi, I'm Brigid and I love to lead walks. In particular, I love to help people, especially women, who might struggle to get out walking, to get started.
I know how hard this can be from personal experience. A few years ago I faced some serious health issues which made me realise I had to look after myself better. Combining a demanding job at Swansea University with raising a family had left me little time for this. Now I am fitter than I have ever been and I want to motivate others to experience the many benefits of walking.
I also love to show off my local area. I have lived in Swansea for over thirty years and never tire of the sheer beauty of the Gower Peninsula. It is such a joy to live by the sea on a beautiful sandy bay. We welcome visitors who love it too.
I offer a bespoke service, designing walks around individual clients or groups of clients.
You will be safe with me. I am a trained Lowland Leader and Health Walks Leader. I am insured, DBS checked and am a qualified First Aider.
I regularly organise wellbeing walks for the Swansea Wellbeing Centre where we explore the many green spaces in the city.
I am a core member of Uplands Living Streets; Living Streets strives to make cities greener, cleaner, friendlier and more walkable.
I am on the organising committee for the popular Gower Walking Festival.
I am a volunteer gardener at the Swansea Botanical Gardens.
I train regularly with Swansea Outdoor Fitness, a fitness bootcamp.
Let's Walk seeks to promote the values of the Welsh Assembly’s Wellbeing of Future Generations Act 2015. This is about 'improving the social, economic, environmental and cultural wellbeing of Wales'.
The Walks pages give a breakdown of the types of walks I offer. See the Gallery for recent walks.
