Radio 4’s All in the Mind did a programme about Walk and Talk which was broadcast on 29/06/2010. The recording was made whilst on the walk and gives a good idea of what Walk and Talk is like. It can be accessed on www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00sv5bk

Walk and Talk Telford 2010
This group ran along the same lines of the original Walk and Talk group in Shrewsbury. It was open to anyone and between 4 and 10 people attended every week from April to September 2010. People who attended reported enjoying the company of others, the informal setting and the opportunity to get out for a walk. Unfortunately the group has not run in subsequent years due to work pressures, team changes and a perceived lack of support for community work.
