MONDAY MEANDER: 2nd Monday of month
This is a gentle walking group where you can meet people, enjoy a short walk and a bit of fresh air with something tasty to eat at the end. (Do bring some money for tea and cake or whatever you fancy!)
We meet whatever the weather and each walk will last for up to an hour with opportunities to rest or turn back at any time.
Walks will begin at different meeting places. We would ask that carers accompany people who need support. For more information or directions please ring Jane on 07973 873663 or e-mail [email protected]
