Angmering Wellbeing Walk
Thank you for everyone that attended our first Wellbeing Walk of the series on 9th July.
Held on the beautiful Angmering Park Private Estate, nearly 30 participants, including five blind and sight impaired who were supported by a team of sighted guides, enjoyed a five mile trail following tracks, paths and some cross-country areas of the Estate which is not normally open to the public. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all who took part. Walkers were fortunate to enjoy a glorious sunny day and took in breath-taking views at the highest point in the walk.
Congratulation to all participants and thank you for helping us raise just over £1000 from the event so far, with more sponsorship money still to come in.
This was the first of three Wellbeing Walks planned for the next 12 months and everyone is invited to sign up for the next two: the second Walk will be routed along Bognor Regis seafront on 1st October 2022, and the final event will visit the historic Horsham Town Centre on 18th March 2023.
The wellbeing theme was reflected along the Walk with a wind chime sensory space, tactile boxes for people to put their hands in to guess the mystery items inside, a ‘beat the intro’ game and all around the route messages encouraging people to ‘take notice’ of their surroundings, smell, sounds etc. Those that participated commented on how much they appreciated the activities provided.
Carole, wife to the Bognor Regis Town Mayor, who took part in the walk commented, “What a lovely journey of wellbeing! Such a chatty friendly group, and the team was brilliant keeping us on track and providing us with refreshments. I especially enjoyed the sensory boxes, music quiz, chimes and poems, and will be sending one of the scenic postcards to a friend I have not connected with for ages.”
We would like to thank Nigel Clutton and the Angmering Park Estate for allowing the Wellbeing Walk at this location, and thanks also go to sponsors for donations of refreshments including Morrison’s, Wick; Waitrose, Chichester and Southdowns Water.
