Council promotes healthy lifestyle
A signposted route around Figges Marsh in Mitcham was created last month to encourage residents to participate in a healthy lifestyle.
The #MertonMile project, run by Merton Council, aims to motivate residents to head through the green space either by walking, jogging or running a mile every day.
The park, found between Streatham Road and London Road, includes an outdoor gym and table tennis.
The council, along with Merton Health and Wellbeing Board, also officially launched its Sugar Smart campaign that aims to teach residents about the health risks of high sugar consumption.
