We know it might be daunting if you’re staying at University during lockdown, especially with changes to your regular university activities. So, keep your mind and body healthy, make a hot chocolate and try this beautiful 1-hour long route through Richmond Park, put together by our Walk and Talk group leader -Lotte. Take a walk, jog, run, dance – whatever makes you feel good!
