Welcome Buddy Walks - Central Park and Life Centre
Meet at the bottom of the library steps
Wed 20 September 2023 14:00-16:00
Wednesday 20 September 2023
2pm - 4pm
Pop along to our volunteer led walks around Central Park and the Life Centre

We have volunteer buddies available to take you around Plymouth's best bits, and chat to you along the way. This is a great way to make some friends if you're struggling to meet people. As freshers is daunting and lonely, we wanted to help combat this! 


We have capped these walks to 20 people to ensure the walks are safe and not overwhelming. If you can't sign up to one, please look on the website as we have many more throughout Freshers!

Please be aware that these tours are student led, and are not guided tours of the city. They are a chance to make some friends with others who are finding it tricky. Please look out for the buddies, who will wait on the SU roof.

They will be in their black welcome buddy t-shirts!
