Free and fun weekly community walks come to the Tooting Commons every Saturday
We are so excited to say that our new free and fun Wandsworth weekly walk and talks are launching at Tooting Bec Common cafe on 11th March 2022 at 10.30am - and we will walk and talk together from there every Saturday after that.
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 from 11th March 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...
From March 11, you can join us at the Tooting Bec Common Cafe at 10.30am every Saturday. 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. 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:
