I walked the Pennine Way in support of Penge Green Gym® between 24th June 2014 and 14th July 2014.
The Pennine Way is Britain’s oldest, longest and most well-known long-distance walk. It starts in the village of Edale in Derbyshire and ends at Kirk Yetholm in Scotland, 270 miles later.
The Penge Green Gym® is a Community Group in South East London. It is an independently run group of volunteers who run a weekly practical gardening session in Winsford Gardens, a park in Penge, South East London with the aim of improving both the local environment and the health of their volunteers.
The Conservation Volunteers Green Gym® is a scheme which inspires you to improve both your health and the environment at the same time.
Experienced leaders guide you through a range of practical projects, giving you the opportunity to tackle physical jobs in the outdoors - improving your strength and stamina, boosting your practical skills and confidence and benefitting your local green spaces.
