Did you know that May is National Walking Month? So what better time for me to relaunch my Wellbeing Walks from Swansea Wellbeing Centre. https://www.wellbeingswansea.co.uk/

The idea is to explore the many green spaces in Uplands, Brynmill and Mount Pleasant, admiring the views, having a good chat and getting a bit of fresh air and exercise along the way. Each week we head for a different venue, for example Victoria Park, the Vetch Community Gardens, Primrose Hill and Rosehill Quarry. There’s time for some local history, some memories from those who grew up and have lived locally, a poem or two (especially on the Dylan Thomas trail) and for finding out about the many community projects going on in the area.

For our first walk on Tuesday 4 May we paused in St James Gardens to get to know each other a little and look up in awe at the majestic redwood trees. Then we walked on to the beautiful Cwmdonkin Park. Here we stood under the pink blossom of the cherry trees and practised a mindful moment listening to the birdsong. It was all very restful and just what we needed after months in lockdown.

I’m looking forward to many more walks; there are still some places available, so do get in touch.
We meet at the Wellbeing Centre (Walter Rd, Burman St, Swansea SA1 5PQ) at 9.15 on Tuesdays.

Walks last an hour (finishing at 10.30), are £7 and bookable in blocks of 3 or 6.
