For those of you who would like to improve your physical and mental wellbeing, join the River Thames walk which takes place this coming November 8 2013 at 10:30am.
Walk4Life is one of the programmes which is set up under the Change4Life organisation. It is a programme of free weekly walks which last between 30-60 minutes long.
The weekly, social, health walks are aimed at those who would like to improve their: ‘’physical and mental wellbeing and enjoy the added benefit of exercising outdoors.’’
Kingston Council’s Health and Wellbeing website says: ‘’The walks are graded to suit a range of abilities led by qualified walk leaders and take place in some of the most beautiful open spaces Kingston has to offer.’’
Walking is a great way to gradually improve your health and wellbeing and what better way to do so than alongside your family and people from your local community. All ages are welcome to attend, though children and young people under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
The meeting point for the weekly River Thames walk is at Coronation Stone outside the Guildhall, Eden Street in Kingston, KT1 1EU. This particular walk, with the beautiful river scenery is slightly longer, lasting between 60-90 minutes, including a well-deserved break at the half way point. The break will give all walkers the chance to socialise while sipping a hot drink, and toilets will be close by.
Participators will feel warm and energised on completion of the 4 miles, which consists of a mostly flat level walk ‘’with a few steps at the start.’’
Walk4Life not only holds the River Thames walk, but other local walks are available to attend throughout the week also.
