A simple, no cost, no fuss way to connect with your community.
The next walk is on Tuesday 1st November.
We're excited to encourage anyone in the locality to show up, and join in - for a gentle 30-40 minute stroll, a chat and a free coffee on us. It is that simple.
Meet at 11am at the Greenway Centre Cafe, Southmead, Bristol BS10 5PY.
It is as simple as it sounds, but more beneficial for you than you can imagine.

Local community centres, village greens, parks, anywhere
Now, more than ever, we need to strengthen in-person, peer support and cultivate opportunities for positive physical and mental well-being across all communities.
It improves self-perception and 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 recover.
Why is Walk+Talk so good for you?
Walk+Talk is a simple, safe and welcoming programme - which aims to help rebuild your confidence to get out and join in with some gentle activity and easy conversation - with other like-minded people in your area. We're confident that these regular opportunities for a little exercise and company, will make you feel happier and healthier.
Research tells us that walking regularly will improve many aspects of health. As a low impact and accessible activity, it can "enhance cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones, reduce excess body fat, and boost muscle power and endurance. It can also reduce your risk of developing conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and some cancers".
Add to this the chance to share a chat and connect with people in your neighbourhood, and the science tells us this is certain to boost your mood.
It's not complicated. It's totally safe. It's entirely inclusive. And it's free.
Show up for the next Walk+Talk for some fresh air, activity and conversation - and to be reminded that you matter, and you belong.
