Where better to take in the fresh air, sights and smells of autumn than at Heaton Park in Higher Blackley in October?
Walking in nature is a wonderful way to keep warm and well. To help inspire you to get out and about this autumn, leading health and wellbeing charity, Royal Voluntary Service, and long-term partner, Yakult, will be hosting a free Autumn Nature walk at Heaton Park on Tuesday 25th October at 2.00-4.00pm (meet at the Farm Centre classroom). The event is designed specifically for older people and is accessible to all. Warm, comfortable clothing and shoes are recommended.
Led by local meditation teachers, Annemarie and Sammy from The Crystal Blossom Sisters, participants will take a gentle guided stroll through Heaton Park, gathering afterwards at the Heaton Park Farm Centre classroom for some mindful reflection and light refreshments. Then there will be a relaxing guided meditation designed to keep the mind and body in balance, ready for when the nights darken and temperatures drop this winter.
Participants will take home a goodie bag, as the winter months draw closer, and a supportive Stay Safe, Warm and Well guide which sets out vital information, including exercise and nutritional advice, energy-saving tips, essential NHS and emergency contact details, and details of how to ensure your home is gas safe.
