Walk for wellbeing

Local mental health charity Mid and North East Essex Mind will be joining forces with organisations across England and Wales to take part in ‘Mindful Monday’ walking groups as part of the European Week of Sport in partnership with ukactive on Monday September 24.
The charity is organising a free ‘Mindfulness’ walk in Maldon and the 3 mile route will start and finish in the car park of the Blackwater Leisure Centre.
It will take in some of the best views Maldon has to offer, including along the sea front and through the Promenade Park led by the Maldon and Dengie Ramblers.The event is open to everyone and starts at 11am.
Jenny MacPherson, Community Partnerships Fundraiser at Mid and North East Essex Mind, says: “We know that mental and physical health are closely related to one another and that physical activity can play a vital role in the lives of people with mental health problems.
“We’re excited to be involved in Mindful Monday and to encourage more people to get engaged with physical activity in order to improve their wellbeing.
“Walking is also a great way to meet other people that are in a similar position and establish friendships.”
