Our new sociable walking groups set up by Sutton Befrienders are to help people in the community get active, have fun and enjoy the benefits of walking in a safe and friendly group.
They are open to anyone who may enjoy a nice walk with some company so please feel free to come along on your own or with a friend.
Don’t worry if you think you walk slowly. Each walk has at least two leaders so that the group can split into two groups with slightly different paces. The main aim of these groups is for people to meet others, get a little fresh air and hopefully enjoy themselves!
Where: Beddington Park, meet opposite St Mary’s Church, Church Road, Wallington, SM6 7NJ

The walk should last 30/45 mins and will end at the Pavilion Café, for refreshments.

If you know someone who you think may benefit from these walks but might need a bit of encouragement, please feel free to refer them to us, with their consent. We will make contact with them to arrange for one of our walking group leaders to meet them, introduce them to the group and walk with them until they are more confident. To make a referral please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
