Physical activty doesn't need to be complicated. Something as simple as a brisk walk on a daily basis can help you live a healthier life. 


Regular walking has been shown to reduce the risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma and stroke. We often worry about how much we are eating, but sometimes forget to theink about the energy we are expending. Even if your weight doesn't change, joining the walking group will help you feel fit and healthy, and is a good opportunity to socialise!

- Saturday October 7th, 10am - 12:30pm
