New mothers are keeping fit by teaming up and going on walks with their babies in buggies.

Buggy walks were launched by Broxtowe Sport last spring to help get more mums out and active.

Among those involved is Lucy Rowlinson, 35, of Brinsley.

After receiving positive feedback she setup a facebook group for the mum’s and started organising more walks and events such as a Christmas party.

Many of those who take part said it had helped them lose weight and socialise with fellow mothers going through the same issues as themselves, while allowing their children to interact with others.

The group attracted 12 mums on a regular basis last year.

Broxtowe Sport is supporting the Buggy Walks and is aiming to boost the number of mums involved.
