Parkinson’s Walks are proving popular. We have expanded from the original idea of walking in parks, and we now include some interesting walks in the Edinburgh area.
At least two committee members or volunteers are at the meeting points. There will be options for medium paced or slower paced walks, so that everyone can walk at a pace that suits.
The next dates/places are:
- Monday 26 February at 10.30. This is a circular walk, starting at Tesco Superstore, Broughton Road. Buses 8, 9, 13 & 36 pass nearby.
Future Walks: dates for your diary are 25 March; 29 April; 27 May; 24 June and 29 July. We will update you about the start locations on our website nearer the time.
The walks are relatively informal. We know that Parkinson’s can put paid to the best of plans, when an ‘off day’ happens. We wanted to have an activity where people are very welcome to just turn up on the day. No need to register in advance, and worry if on the day they don’t feel able to come along. The walks are open to People with Parkinson’s and their supporters.
We look forward to enjoying good company, some exercise and fresh air. Please wear suitable clothing and footwear.
We will typically end the walk close to somewhere that people can go for a tea or coffee close to the end of the walk (which are often circular).
