Avoid the sunrays while walking in a safe, all weather, flat surface and friendly environment. The Riverlink Walking Group coordinated by the Ipswich Hospital Foundation is a social walking group for all ages (Mums and Dad’s with prams welcome too).
Meeting each Tuesday and Thursday at 7am, outside Nextra (best accessed via Lowry Street), for only a gold coin donation.
No need to book, just come along and walk at your own pace (with as many breaks as you like) through the support of an Ipswich Hospital Foundation group leader.
On the last Thursday of every month, Muffin Break also provide coffee and a light snack which provides the opportunity to meet and socialise with others in the group.

Unlike some other forms of exercise, walking is free and doesn’t require any special equipment or training.
