Carshalton Walk and Talks



Created to help new parents make connections - particuarly those who have become parents or moved to the area in lockdown and haven't been able to network in the usual ways.  We really hope that these walks provide you with an opportunity to get out in nature, meet new people and get support from other parents.  Slings, buggies and toddlers welcome!  Walk and Talks happen every Wednesday, alternating The Grove and Beddington Park, both in Carshalton. 

Due to government restrictions, at this time we can only have a limited people per walk including our volunteer leader. This means walks will be SMALL, but hope you get something BIG from them!

Tickets are free but you must book one for every adult, child or infant attending. This means we only have a few tickets available per walk, unless we get more volunteers and can run multiple pods on each walk.  Therefore we do ask to please let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend after booking a place.

 - On the event enquiry page please ignore the event date of ‘31st December 2020’. Each event date with availability will be listed further down the page.
