We’re very excited to announce that our programme of over 55s outdoor walks are back - all with social distancing - in various parks across Barnet!
‘Walking in green spaces gives a real boost to your physical and mental wellbeing,’ says Wendy Nutman, who is running Age UK Barnet’s walking programme. ‘Even a gentle walk improves your strength in later life, especially for those living with a health condition. And you can make new friends!’
- Improve your social life
- Enhance your mood and increase your confidence
- Maintain good balance and coordination
- Keep your joints flexible, reducing the risk of falls
- Support management of health conditions
You probably don’t need any more reasons to come along to one of our walks!!
So why not try out one of the four walks we have launched so far. All fitness levels welcome.
Group numbers are limited and in line with current government guidelines so booking is essential!
Walks free, but donations welcome!
