The first Walk and Talk was launched in Wimbledon Park in 2021, with the mission to ‘bring communities together for a fun, healthy and engaging weekly walk in their local green space’.
Since then, co-founders and directors Ali Palmer and Andy Yates, helped by third director Helen Clark-Bell, and with funding from Merton Council and Merton Giving, have been busy growing this successful Community Interest Company and launched further Walk and Talks in Morden Hall Park, Canons House and Grounds, Colliers Wood, and, most recently, a walk and talk in partnership with AFC Wimbledon Foundation, starting from the Womble Bench outside the station.
In the video below Wimbledon Community Association/Wimblecomm Trustee Karl Schneider speaks to co-founder Ali and some of the lovely walkers who came to the launch event of the Morden Walk and Talk in June 2022.
Why not give the Walk and Talk a try: It’s free, there is no need to register or book, and everyone, including your children and pets, is welcome. Let’s Walk and Talk Together – in a Green Space near You!
