More than a Health walk…Great for mental health

So week in week out since June 2014, we have been doing our lunchtime walk with our wonderful participants. I do not only lead it because of the obvious health and fitness benefits it brings people who attend, but also for the simple reason of meeting some amazing people from all walks of life. It also improves mental health….

The happy and not so happy stories we share, the interesting experiences, the brand new recipe, the various cultures we explore, the ‘getting to know people bit’, all make it worthwhile. Just priceless!

Today, it was beautiful to see our swan again nesting and just talking about that was interesting and a great learning experience.

All about swans….Did you know that swans symbolize beauty and grace on many levels? In Roman mythology, swan was sacred to Venus, the goddess of love. Swans can get aggressive. If you approach a swan nest on the river, they might get a little aggressive and flap their wings to scare you away. They are only trying to protect their own.

If you would like to join our FREE walk, we meet at the Corn Market Hall, Kettering most Wednesdays 12.30pm. Dogs on leads and babies in buggies are welcome. Please contact Aba on 07725685090 for more information.
