Renew Ripon – Wellbeing Walks for Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week 2024 runs from the 13th -19th May. The theme this year is ‘Movement: moving more for our mental health.’ To raise awareness of looking after our mental health and to focus on this theme, Renew Ripon will be running additional sessions during the week to include wellbeing walks. These will be in addition to the usual Monday lunchtime and Tuesday evening Renew Ripon spaces. The Wellbeing walks will be as follows:

Wednesday 15th May 11am-12.30pm. Meet at Holy Trinity Church by the Renew Ripon flag. The walk is easy to moderate and will include a walk to Spa Gardens and the Market Place to take in the knitted decorations. There will be a brief mindfulness reflection by the Holy Trinity wilding area, followed by coffee and cake in the Arches.

Thursday 16th May  6-7.30pm. Meet at Holy Trinity Church by the Renew Ripon flag. The walk is moderate to challenging. Please consider your own ability as this is a slightly longer walk and may include uneven terrain. The walk will return to Holy Trinity Church and will include a brief outdoor mindfulness reflection along the way.

All adults welcome.
