Lincoln City Foundation are excited to relaunch our Health Walks in conjunction with Lincolnshire Coop and Ramblers Walking for Health!
We have 7 different walks starting from locations in the Lincoln area. These walks are led by a trained Walk Leader and will explore several areas of the city, allowing participants to take in the wonderful world around them. Learn about your local area and its wildlife, meet new friends and boost your mental wellbeing after lockdown.

Helps to lower blood pressure
Helps improve sleep patterns
Improves the flexibility and strength of joint
Reduces stress levels

All Health Walks will be run in accordance with the latest guidance from both the government and the Ramblers Walking for Health

Aikido is a non competitive martial art originating in Japan. It uses posture and form to generate power and control so it is accessible to all walks of life to practice and enjoy. There are 6 basic movements to master along with a main stance which can help people improve their awareness and posture. There is a catalogue of self defense based techniques which can be learnt step by step along with an insight into Japanese culture and the language.
The group is run by Neville Coupland a 4th Dan practitioner who studied and lived in Japan for over 5 years.

Green Space Gardening
Are you looking for a green fingered hobby and do not have space of your own why not come down and get involved with the local Sincil Bank Community Allotment?
We are looking for energetic and able people who are living in the Sincil Bank area who want to get stuck in and help maintain and develop the current allotment. This allotment was started over four years ago by a group of local volunteers who have continued to maintain the space and now run the allotment themselves.
The allotment is a good size with a green house and secure shed. There are two main beds and filled tyres which hold a wide variety of vegetables and some fruit.
The group meet up every Tuesday and Friday mornings (unless it’s raining) for a couple of hours. For those who want to get stuck in there is a small fee spread over the year to ensure the group have funds for site rent, seeds, and equipment. With this membership you can then reap the rewards when produce is shared between members.
For more information please don’t hesitate to contact our Health and Inclusion Offer, Kirsten, on 07736 900333 and a member of the Foundation team can accompany you to your first visit.
There is parking available at the LNER Stadium with the allotment being a short walk away.
This unique sport has captured many people’s attention because of the great comradery, the social aspects that come with playing the beautiful game and a sense of personal reward and achievement. The health benefits such as increased strength, stability and stamina is an added bonus. No running brings everyone down to a level playing field no matter your age or ability you can play.
