Weymouth Health Walks postponed
Weymouth Town Council has postponed Weymouth Health Walks from Thursday 5 November 2020 following the Prime Minister’s announcement at the weekend.
The Weymouth Health Walks scheme offers residents of all walking abilities the chance to meet safely with others and benefit from fresh air and gentle exercise, using local parks and open spaces.
Following the latest proposed restrictions, Weymouth Health Walks will unfortunately need to be paused until further notice. Volunteer walk leaders look forward to meeting residents again as soon as it is safe to do so.
Cllr David Northam, Chair of the Services Committee, said:
“Weymouth Health Walks have been hugely beneficial for local residents, however ensuring the safety of walkers is our top priority.”
“We recognise the walks have helped to connect people who have been socially isolated due to the coronavirus pandemic and want our residents to know that help is still available. We encourage anyone who might be feeling isolated or alone in these difficult times to take advantage of our fantastic Keep in Touch scheme.”
Residents who sign up for the Keep in Touch scheme can join group calls which take place once a week or sign up to receive letters from local volunteers. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07902 217942 for more information.
