If you are looking to meet a wonderful group of new friends, a chat, some exercise and a coffee this could be for you!!  Mall Walking groups are supported by COTA WA and they are held weekly at various shopping centres across Perth.  These groups are led by lively volunteer “Mall Walking Leaders”.  They take the participants through a warm up before commencing the walk and they finish with a cool down session.  It is free, fun and a great way to stay fit and active.  Please view the below link for all the information you need to know about these energetic groups.
