A new monthly ‘Walk & Talk’ group has been set up in Nantwich.
Karen Mills and Emma Dechoux have teamed up to organise a Walk & Talk in Nantwich on the first Sunday of every month.
The pair recognise the benefits that exercise, the outdoors and socialising has for mental health and are organising walks where everyone is welcome to join, meet new people or catch up with existing friends.
Walking improves self-esteem, mood and sleep quality, and it reduces stress, anxiety and fatigue.
Physically active people have up to a 30% reduced risk of becoming depressed, and staying active helps those who are depressed to recover.
The walks take place on the first Sunday of every month at 10am from Nantwich town square.
The walk goes to Nantwich Lake, around the lake and back again to Aroma Cafe where there is the option to join Karen and Emma for a tea/coffee and a chat.
The walk is approximately two miles and all flat.
Everyone is welcome – adults, dogs, and children (supervised by an adult).
The next two walks are on Sunday 2nd February (10am) and Sunday 1st March (10am).
