·         Oldham residents young and old are walking for a world without dementia.

October’s Oldham Memory Walk will highlight the benefits of gentle exercise whilst raising money for Alzheimer’s Society.

According to Public Health England, physical activity, including walking, not only helps to reduce the risk of developing dementia but boosts emotional wellbeing and promotes companionship. The sponsored morning walk will take place in Alexandra Park, is suitable for people of all abilities and is open to everyone. Different routes cater for a range of fitness levels, with the shortest trail covering just 600 steps (around 500 yards). Walkers can join a fast or relaxed group or choose to walk only with other women.

The event has been organised by adult health and social care charity Making Space, Age UK Oldham and Oldham Community Leisure.

Anyone wanting to take part can meet at on Thursday 27 October at 10.30am at the Boathouse Cafe, Alexandra Park. Further information about sponsorship forms, taking part in the Memory Walk, or joining a regular walking group in Oldham are available from Teresa Griffiths on 0161 207 7000 or
