The event is being promoted as an opportunity to improve your health and wellbeing through nature.

Recovery in Mind says: "It can fascinate us, calm us and give strength to overcome difficult challenges. This guided walk will give you the opportunity to reflect on your senses, thoughts and feelings. The gentle walk will pause at given points to consider your senses and have a discussion about what possibilities may be open to you."

The charity says please no dogs or children as this is time for participants to invest in their wellbeing and to reflect on their own circumstances.

You are advised to dress appropriately for the weather on the day, with sensible footwear and bring a bottle of water.

West Berkshire Council has posted a reminder to people that today is the start of #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek, with a focus on how loneliness can affect you, and how to get help.

Its post says: "If you are experiencing domestic abuse, it is not uncommon to feel alone and unable to speak to anyone, but we have support to help you and your mental health.

"We have a local domestic abuse service that can help you; call them on 0800 7310055 10am-7pm, Monday to Friday, or if safe to do so, you can also email das@a2dominion.co.uk.

"If it is an emergency, dial 55 if you are unable to speak on the phone where you will be assisted without having to speak."
