Autumn sunshine for our final Braintree Walk and Talk of the year

We would definitely agree with the quote "Walking is man's best medicine" having had our final walk and talk of the year in Braintree.

We were delighted to be joined by residents of Millard House for a glorious stroll around the Braintree and Bocking Public Gardens on October 9th. Joining us were children from Step Start Nursery Braintree and two local community police officers.

The residents enjoyed helping the children spot things that were pictured on their park bingo, spotting a ladybird, the bandstand and the play equipment.

We walked to the beautiful John Ray gardens, and enjoyed the last scents of lavender lingering on the plant. While the children explored the garden the residents had a chance to chat with the PCSO's from Braintree Police station.

We then went on to look at the fish in the pond, meeting back up with our nursery friends under the bandstand. After another chat with the children, we had to say our goodbyes and we headed to the Coffee Shop in the Gardens to enjoy refreshments sponsored by the Lions Club of Braintree.

We can't wait for our walk and talk sessions to resume again next year!

It's lovely we can do this
