Men can walk, talk way to better health

STROLLING and chatting their way to better health, Peakhurst’s Men’s Walk and Talk group is a new opportunity for men, aged 15 and over, to take an hour for themselves to walk with the company of other blokes.

Focussed on improving physical and mental health and providing a great opportunity to meet new people, this is a weekly, no-cost event.
Being part of the walk and talk means that participants will “never walk alone” which is reassuring in this time of social isolation.
Initiated by the Lending a Hand team at Our Lady of Fatima Parish, Peakhurst, the program was inspired by a similar weekly event held at Penrith which attracts up to 200 men.
Starting on Thursday, November 26, from the church (corner of Forest Road and Isaac Street, Peakhurst), the walk will take place around the newly-refurbished lower Gannons Park with final laps around the sports fields.
Any interested men can just turn up between 5.30pm and 5.45pm for a 6pm start on Thursdays.
Parking is available in the church carpark. This is a dog-free activity so leave Rover at home.
