Coldwells walk for Health and Happiness

We are loving our “Walking for Health and Happiness“ here at Coldwells. Our residents are already noticing the benefits from our morning walk in the country. Fresh air; getting fitter; socialising with each other; keeping joints flexible (Rene’s knee was very stiff before the walk yet she was first up and down the hills!) - Our residents’ health and well-being will continue to improve in so many ways by just continuing to join in with our daily walks. Today we walked up the country lanes and sat in The Rose Gardens pub gardens for a rest. Such a beautiful morning, not a cloud in the sky. The discussion? Continue to get fit on our daily walks and be fit enough to visit Queenswood in April to see the bluebells, and have a lovely walk around the trails. Then onto our next challenge Symonds Yat in May!! Watch this space! Go All Team Coldwells!!
