Why not try another lap?!

ABOUT THE HAYDON HILL PARK WALK
The earliest record of any human activity in the area is from pottery and a bronze ligula (small spoon) found in 1978 dating from the early Iron Age to 5th-century Roman.
It is easy to forget to drink plenty of water during the hot weather, but it is important to keep well hydrated.
Drinking sufficient water helps regulate body temperature, maintains cell nourishment and organ function.
And it can improve sleep quality during the hot weather.
SMALL STEPS, BIGGER GAINS FOR LIFE
Local Park Walks is not just about our health today but to protect our wellbeing for a lifetime. Evidence tells us that if we stand more than three hours a day we could extend our life expectancy by two years.
And it’s never too late. A recent study showed that if 70 year olds were active 20 minutes a day, then they would reduce the chance of a heart attack in their 80s by half!
