Gardener's Health and Well-being Event at Wallingford Sports Park

Gardeners are known for rushing out at the first hint of sunshine. Launching into a full day of raking, digging, planting, lifting, and general garden fun, can cause aches and pains. This event is all about giving you practical advice on how to prepare your body before you start your gardening activities and what you can do afterwards to prevent some of the aches and pains. There will also be a chance to try out a gentle yoga for gardeners session. At the Wallingford Event, the friendly Wallingford Petanque club members will be on hand to offer an outdoor taster session and show you how to play this fun and easy to learn game. Everyone will receive a FREE "stretching for gardeners" handout.

Wallingford Sports Park, Thursday 13 September, 9 am - 12.30 pm, entry fee £4

Grove Village Hall, Friday 28 September, 12.30 pm - 3.30 pm, entry fee £4
