The summer has flown past it seems, so we thought we would post a few updates on the recent news from the group…
Cycling: we had a hilarious evening of cycling with the guys from wheels for wellbeing. They brought us all kinds of bikes from some pretty sedate tricycles to some terrifying low slung speed machines, and we got to test them out. Most of us were a bit tentative at first but after a few laps we were flying (well, cycling). Despite the random hailstorms everyone really enjoyed themselves, and proved that you really never do forget how to ride a bike!
Golf: we revisited our old favourite putt in the park. Luckily we were in for some nicer weather, and enjoyed a good round of (mini) golf under the sun. The place was really popular after it had been featured on made in Chelsea – good to know they’re taking inspiration from our activities..!
Picnics: there have been a few lovely long summer evenings spent with a picnic on the common. Our group loves doing this as its so relaxed and just gives people a chance to catch up. A recent addition of cricket bat saw us take some inspiration from the ashes (no Australians around to beat this time) and get some exercise to work off all the picnic food.
1st SEPTEMBER: OPEN NIGHT
We are planning an open night to welcome potential new SW18-ers to the group. There’ll be food provided and a chance to meet us all and see if you’d like to come along. The group is now open to anyone aged 18-35 in and around Wandsworth and Westminster boroughs, living with a mental health difficulty. If you’d like more info please email Hannahwandsworthmind@gmail.com
