Take a step in the right direction with Winter Walk n Talks
Published on 28 June 2019
Take a step in the right direction with Winter Walk n Talks Community members of all ages are invited to join Maribyrnong’s Winter Walk n Talk program which will bring together locals for weekly walks in the month of July, to discover local history and hidden gems including street art, businesses and parks.
Hitting the streets of Maidstone and West Footscray, walkers will have the opportunity to learn more about local services, how to start their own walking group, and get to know each other, all while staying warm with some gentle exercise.
Timings of the weekly walks align with popular programs and activities such as ‘Music for hip toddlers’ and ‘Conversational English’ classes at Maidstone Community Centre and West Footscray Neighbourhood House.
Plus all walkers will also go into the draw to win great prizes such as Maribyrnong Aquatic Centre passes, Maidstone Community Centre activity vouchers and a copy of ‘A Fortunate Life’ by famous local Albert Facey.
A word from the Mayor, Cr Martin Zakharov:
“Walking is a great way to get to know your neighbours and the neighbourhood, and ultimately feel more connected in the community. “I encourage all locals to get out and about this winter and rediscover some of our City’s treasures.”
