MORE volunteers are needed to help lead Huntingdonshire Health Walks, with vacancies particularly in Huntingdon and Ramsey.
The scheme has been running for more than three years with walks being held in St Ives, St Neots, Huntingdon and Ramsey.
They are currently led by 20 trained volunteers but more people are needed.
Co-ordinator Lisa Curry said: "We rely on volunteers giving up a little of their time each month to enable the scheme to continue to be successful.
"It is quite gentle exercise and offers people the opportunity to see more of their local countryside."
Training is provided free and volunteers can commit as much as they like.
