We’re very excited to announce that our programme of over 55s outdoor walks are back 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!’

Walking can:

  • 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!!

 All fitness levels welcome.

Walks free, but donations welcome!
