Walking for Fitness and Fun!
In good weather or bad, our Woodend walkers are ready for the challenge!
Twice weekly residents get together for a fun, social morning walk to improve their fitness and to catch-up over a good cuppa. Meeting at the sales office, the group heads off for a 2-kilometre walk to the Woodend township where they take a coffee break before heading back to GemLife.
