Walk for Health

Following the success of the initial previous 'Walk for Health', further walks are now planned on Riddlesdown Common.

Social prescribing enables GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services. These services can involve a variety of activities which are typically provided by voluntary and community sector organisations. For example, for someone who might be lonely or socially isolated, the GPs social prescription might include, activities such as, joining a lunch club, exercise or walking groups, befriending, volunteering, or something as a simple as a drop-in facility for coffee and a chat. With this in mind the City of London Rangers on Riddlesdown Common, supported by St Edmund's Care Group and Riddlesdown Residents' Association, have arranged a programme of short guided walks for those, who perhaps, have not walked for a while and feel in need of a little support.

The next short circular 'Walk for Health' for around 30 - 45 mins, will be on Wednesday 27 November starting from the car park on Riddlesdown Common, off Riddlesdown Rd at 1.30pm.

No need to book - just turn up!
