Yesterday Kettering Walkers played host to three second-year medical students from the University of Tasmania.
As part of the their curriculum students participate in a Rural Community Week.
This includes time spent at the Snug Medical Cnetre, time on Bruny Island and a walk with the local Heart Foundation Walking Group.
Kettering Walkers are delighted to be part of this UTAS placement initiative and hope that the young doctors-to-be-will go on to promote the idea that walking at any age and ability is an integral and important part of well-being.
Kettering Walkers have now been active for five years and our recent celebratory
- The Nierinna Creek Track ending up with morning tea at the Channel Museum, Margate
- Old Station Road where we took the bus from Oyster Cove to Snug and then
walked the 7km return
- Snug River with morning tea and birthday cake afterwards.
With all those rewards on offer no wonder the walkers always look happy. Some photos (click to enlarge):
