HCI has teamed up with CREW health to bring you a new healthy walk and natter. Starting from Queen’s Road Neighbourhood Centre at 12.30pm. The walk will be lead by a trained leader, who will also include some local knowledge of the area. The walk is an easy pace on flat ground and you will have the chance to have a breather as well as a good natter!
