buggy walks

Total Beginner
The Active Newcastle Buggy Walks launched in February and have proved a great success. The idea is simple and a great way for new mums, dads, grandparents and carers to get out in the fresh air, socialise and get some extra steps in. We start at the Oats and Eggs Pantry, Heaton every Friday at 11am. Walking approximately 2 miles along planned and assessed routes taking in the surroundings

For new parents, grandparents & carers

Gemma has taken part in the buggy walks from day one she says it is "a great way to get out and meet new people, it is great for the little one and me to be out in the fresh air" The setting of The Oats and Eggs Pantry for the start and finish is a great addition and allows participants and their children a safe environment to catch up after the walks Gemma has come to the sessions weekly since the start and has now started to lead the walks and plan routes too.. she has got fully behind the buggy walks and constantly talks to the mums and motivates them to keep coming She says there are a lot of benefits to organised and free sessions for new mums especially if you are looking to get back into activity or want to try something new contact
