Get back to nature, enjoy the fresh air, and meet some new people by signing up to a free weekly ‘Wednesday Wellbeing Walk’ in Southampton City Centre.

The walks, run by GO! Southampton, along with Mark Darcy from Mark Darcy Consultancy, are aimed to help city workers get out and about and make the most of their lunchtime breaks.

Starting on Wednesday, May 8th, they’ll take place every week at 12:45-1:15pm. Meeting at the Peace Fountain in East Park, also known locally as Andrews Park, walkers will then head off to discover some of Southampton’s award-winning green spaces.

With a focus on improving mental health and wellbeing in the city, GO! Southampton is keen to spread the word.

Flo Bevis, Marketing Manager, said: “We hope to see as many of our members on a Wednesday as we can. There are only 30 spaces available each week though, so make sure you book in quickly. These walks are not only an opportunity for a great break and a bit of exercise but also a chance to meet new people.”

Mark Darcy said: “The purpose is to bring people together to help combat loneliness and mental health issues while having meaningful conversations and connections. I encourage everyone to bring an open mind, and a willingness to meet new friends. You might even learn something along the way!”
