November to March they meet at Deal Library, Broad Street, Deal at 1:15pm.
Thursday: Deal Pier Healthwalk
Very gentle walk on the pier for those with limited mobility. Ideal for those with long-term medical conditions and those recovering from an illness or operation. Everyone walks at their own pace, however gentle, and there are seats along the length of the pier where people can ‘take a breather’.
Involves approximately 10 mins of walking in each direction with a tea/coffee break in the middle. Wheelchairs and mobility scooters welcome.
Run by members of Deal Strokes Club.
