There is no better way to get to know the area you live in than by walking it.

Walk Around Your Area is led by a member of the local community and the idea is to get to meet other people, have a chat while exploring the area as well as some new areas.

The first walk around the area took place in September and more dates are to follow.    People are free to drop off at any point of the walk.

Barbara Benjamin who went on the first walk led by Dolores Collins said: “It was absolutely fantastic and enlightening. I really didn’t know that there were so many lovely green spaces in Thornton Heath. We are really living in a lovely area with so much to offer. Thanks Dolores and I would encourage anyone who maybe live in Thornton Heath but has never really explored it like myself, to go on a walk with Dolores it is a real eye opener.”

Watch out for the next one. Details are on the THCAT Facebook page
