WORD about Ulladulla's Walk 'n' Talk is spreading and on Sunday over 20 people took part in the event's latest chapter.
It was a record attendance for this new community event.
Walk 'n' Talk is a suicide prevention initiative that Dave Rutherford with support from his wife Jennie brought to the region.
Sunday''s walk, around Burrill Lake, was a most successful day and many first-time walkers took part.
The walkers received some friendly waves and a few toots from cars as they went past.
Dave welcomed everyone to the walk and went on to explain why he decided to bring it to Ulladulla.
He explained how Walk 'n' Talk gives people the chance to get out and do something good for their well-being.
While preventing suicide might be its prime objective, the walk also serves another purpose.
It gives people the chance to meet other people and make friends.
The next walk is on Sunday, August 15 at Mollymook Beach from 8.45am.
