Great news - the Tooting Commons Walk and Talk launches
We had a lot of fun launching our first Wandsworth Walk and Talk from outside the cafe on Tooting Bec Common with the lovely Mayor of Wandsworth, our great local champion Jane and a fantastic crowd of walkers and talkers.
Walkers and Talkers of all ages from all across the local area came together to enjoy the fresh air, the great outdoors, nature on their doorstep and each other's company.
So now come and join us every Saturday at 10.30am from outside the Tooting Bec Common Cafe for free and fun walk and talk around the Tooting Commons - all ages, abilities and pets welcome.
There are lots of interesting places to see, things to do together and people to meet - and whatever the weather you are guaranteed a very warm welcome and a smile.
Free and fun weekly community walks come to the Tooting Commons every Saturday
This is a chance for all generations to take a stroll, chat, meet friends and neighbours, make new friends and support each other. From older adults to young children, from buggies to beagles – everybody can join in.
Our Walk and Talks are inclusive, accessible, fun and friendly - so the whole community can take part and benefit. We will also link up with other local activities and groups to support the community. No booking, no reservations, just turn up and you will get a very warm welcome.
About The Tooting Common Walk and Talk
Walkers and Talkers meet every Saturday at 10.30am come rain or shine outside the Tooting Bec Common Cafe. (http://tootingbeccommoncafe.co.uk/).
Come and enjoy the rich flora, fauna and wildlife of the Tooting Commons. There are so many great walks around the local area...and here are some recent pictures we took of the local wildlife....including a woodpecker and a rather noisy goose up a tree (top left)!
...and discover some of the Tooting area's fascinating history....
From pop stars to poets, suffragettes to soldiers, and novelists to nurses, Tooting Common and its surrounding streets have so many stories to tell...
We'll be walking and talking, appreciating nature, visiting other local organisations, and finding out more about the notable people who have visited the Common in years gone by.
So what are you waiting for - join us every Saturday for a free and fun walk and talk together.
About The Walk and Talk Movement
The Walk and Talk Movement (https://wewalkandtalk.org/) is on a mission to bring communities together in a fun, healthy and engaging way.
Here are all of our current Walk and Talk locations:
The Walk and Talk Movement has already engaged with 3,500+ local residents, walked more than 10,000km, taken more than 6m steps together, burnt more than 600,000 calories and enjoyed thousands of conversations and stories. We are here to help everybody in the local community, any age, any ability, any pets, any Saturday at 10.30am.
Of course The Walk and Talk Movement is not just about numbers, it is about stories and conversations. About changing lives for the better as our video shows:
How you can help your local community
In 2023 The Walk and Talk Movement's goal is to double the walk and talks we run and the people we help.
We want to grow our amazing pool of volunteers to make walk and talks sustainable over the long term and to enable us to start new walk and talks in even more green spaces and help even more people in our community.
Here is our volunteer video that shows how easy and fun it is to volunteer for just a few hours a month - in fact, it is a walk in the park:
