On every first Friday of each month wellbeing walks are organised for people who want to get healthier or just more active.
The free monthly walks are set up through the Walk for Health organisation and a qualified walker leads them. The next one is going to be on December 6, 2013 and will start at 12 noon and last for 40 minutes.
Jo Heath, sports development manager of Kingston university, said: ‘’The walks are open to anyone, not just students. It is open to the general public and we are hoping to get more people involved.’’
‘’The walks are a good social thing and it is a nice way of doing things, talk and walk. The routes are nice, by the river.’’
The idea behind the walks, which began in August, is to get a good pace going and feel slightly warmer gradually building your health no matter what level of fitness you are. It is a great opportunity to socialise with others as you walk and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenary.
The meeting point is outside the university’s fitness centre on Penrhyn Road, Kingston.
