Introducing Merton Moves

Merton Moves is here to help you adopt a more physically active lifestyle. Regular physical activity is key to healthy ageing, and it's never too late to start! 

Merton Moves is a new initiative from Wimbledon Guild and Merton Council to inform people at, or nearing, retirement age about the importance of staying active. 

On this webpage, you will find tips and advice on your journey to better health. You will also find information on why an active lifestyle is so important to your physical and mental health, your cognitive abilities and your independence.

Always talk to your doctor before starting a new exercise programme and, once you do, start slowly and carefully.

We need your help...

Every year, we provide financial and emotional support to over 2,000 people in our local community. Since Covid-19 that number has increased, and as well as helping our existing clients, we’re now also providing urgent support to hundreds more local people whose lives and livelihoods have been impacted by the pandemic.
