Free health walks are returning

Weymouth Town Council have announced that free local health walks will be starting again from Monday 7th September 2020.


As lockdown restrictions are beginning to ease Weymouth Town Council have been working hard with their volunteer walk leaders to ensure the safe return of their weekly walks. They have sought advice from the Ramblers Walking for Health national team. During lockdown, the walk leaders have kept in touch with some of their walkers who can’t wait to start walking again.


Jane Biscombe Weymouth Town Council clerk said:

“Maximising the safety of our walkers is our top priority and we are very lucky to be able to use local parks and open spaces for our walks. This ensures that social distancing can be maintained, whilst giving our walkers the opportunity to renew old friendships.”


Cllr Gill Taylor said:

“We are resuming our walks in September and although it will feel different because of social distancing and the limit on numbers, it will be lovely to be able to see our regular walkers, some of whom had not met up with other people for 17 weeks. We want to support our community by getting people out and about together in a safe manner, as this was highlighted as a great need whilst we were delivering the Keep in Touch project”.


Those wanting to join in on the walks must book in advance and not attend if they or anybody in their household is displaying Covid-19 symptoms.
