Walk & Talk, a new free social walk for over 65s in Shrewsbury.
The new Walk & Talk social events aim to bring people together and help encourage exercise as part of the new national EFL programme, Tackling Loneliness Together. We believe that they will help to keep our community active and connected and will take full advantage of our beautiful county’s landscape.
Health Activator Kate Lindley is excited to launch the project as another strand to our wider active ageing aims. “Our new Walk & Talk sessions aim to help people in two different ways. Of course they encourage people to get active and into the regular habit of walking, but we also hope they will provide a way to connect members of our community and spark new friendships. Since the sessions are free there is absolutely no reason to not come and give it a go!”
Walk & Talk meet-ups are completely free, alternating between Love2Stay, Attingham Park, Weir Cafe and Haughmond Hill near Shrewsbury. Participants are not required to register and will be able to simply turn up each week!
