Join the South Kilburn Walking Group

Every Saturday morning a group of local residents meet for a walk around South Kilburn, led by South Kilburn Trust’s very own Nilufer.

This is not a hike or endurance challenge – it is a leisurely stroll whilst chatting to friends and neighbours, and always ends with tea and cake! It’s a great way to get to know more about the local area and the people in it. Especially now that the weather is getting better, there is no excuse not to get out of the house for an hour or two, stretch your legs and make some new friends.

The light exercise, good company and fresh air is good for both body and soul. No need to book – just turn up at 10 am on Saturday at The Granville Reception.
