Join us for a Dementia friendly walking tour around Southwark’s streets and green spaces.
We will take a short circular walk around Walworth, to hear stories about the familiar and the exotic – from histories of local shops, to tales of Britain’s best zoo, based in Southwark’s Surrey Zoological Gardens 180 years ago. We will take a tour around Walworth Garden Farm, and be introduced to the mental health and wellbeing benefits of flowers, like the orange marigold Calendula, an incredible anti-inflammatory, antiviral herb.
The walk is run in partnership with Southwark Dementia Action Alliance and celebrates Dementia Awareness Week.
