The Daily Mile

Join the daily mile! The aim of The Daily Mile is to incorporate 15 minutes of self-paced physical activity (walking, jogging or running) into your daily life, to experience the benefits of regular exercise. We all know that regular physical activity has a positive impact on our health and wellbeing

By getting #FitForLife with The Daily Mile, you are taking the first steps to leading a more active, healthier lifestyle.

This isn’t about elite sport or exercise – simply go outside into the fresh air in what you’re wearing, to get fit in 15 minutes of self-paced walking, jogging, running or wheeling. In this time, most people will average a mile or more. By focusing on the time of 15 minutes rather than on the distance, it keeps The Daily Mile non-competitive, social, and inclusive – everyone can take part at their own pace, regardless of age or ability.

Click below to learn more about the Daily Mile Fit for Life, find inspiration and information on how to get involved, and download items to keep you moving and motivated. Plus, family friendly downloads!

Winterton and All Saints’ Church – Walking Trails 
There is much of interest in All Saints and within our community of Winterton. The town still shows much of its medieval origins and has several handsome Georgian stone houses. All Saints, very large for a rural church, dates from before 1100 and has many interesting features as well as hosting Winterton’s heritage centre.

The best way to see Winterton is to use the free Walk Around Winterton leaflet available at the church. It will lead you round the historic core of the town, allow you to see a range of interesting buildings and learn about the local heritage. An Online version can be found here: Walk around Winterton
