The Solihull Striders and Strollers programme is part of the national Walking the Way to Health initiative.
The Discovery Walks programme aims to bring together a wide range of people who enjoy natural history, local history and of course, walking. It can be seen as a natural extension to the Solihull 'Striders and Strollers' programme with longer walks that take place both within and outside Solihull.
