Our walks are free and open ot everyone and will continue over the Summer of 2021.
We are a free park-based social group for Mums, Mums to be, Dads, Grandparents. An initiative from the people behind Buggy Runners, the fitness session where your baby comes too. Welcome to a new friendship group for those looking for fresh air, exercise, company, advice, help and support.
Mummy Walk & Talk is the perfect way to enjoy some gentle exercise while out with your baby. The walks are led by certified walk leader Angela Sweeney and her wonderful team of volunteers.
Exercising outdoors in beautiful green spaces has been proven to help with wellbeing, both mental and physical. New mothers are reminded of this often. But it’s not always easy to motivate yourself to get out there. Sometimes just getting out of your pyjamas is a major effort. We believe that if you have a social group to attend with your baby, you’re more likely to take those important steps out of the house and into the world. If the social group is outdoors, and involves gentle but regular exercise, your mood improves dramatically.
The walks will last just 45 minutes and there’ll be plenty of opportunity to rest if mums feel too tired, as well as a chance to visit the café with new friends and continue the conversation. This initiative is supported by Greenwich Fitness & Pilates, Greenwich Borough & the Royal Parks.
