Walk and Talk with Karen and Emma on the first Sunday of every month. Arranged by Karen Mills (Zen Occupational Health) and Emma Dechoux (Inspired Learning), the walks show that exercise, the outdoors and socialising benefit mental health. The two-mile, all flat, walks start at 10am in The Square (Nantwich town centre) and go around Nantwich Lake (off Shrewbridge Road and Park Road) and return to Aroma Cafe for coffee or tea and a chat (optional). Open to everyone - adults, dogs and children (supervised by an adult).
