A walk and a chat…
We know that there are a lot of people out there who are feeling very isolated by the lockdown at the moment, and have been thinking about what we can do to help! The lack of social contact is getting to us all, but it must be particularly tough for those who live alone, or are far from their families.
How Walking Buddies works
Current lockdown rules mean that you are allowed to meet one other person within your local area for some exercise. We know that there are a lot of people who are in the same boat, who might just benefit from some fresh air, a chat and some exercise.
So, if you would be interested in being paired up with someone else locally to meet for a walk and a chat, then add your details to the form below. We’ll then contact you when there is a suitable match and give you each others details to arrange a walk.
This service of connecting people is being provided by us at here at Penistone Leisure Centre, but we aren’t able to offer a walk leader or anything more due to current restrictions, so it should be noted that you are responsible for your own safety whilst meeting your walk buddy. Social distancing should be maintained at all times, and you should not attend arranged walks if you are displaying any of the symptoms of Covid-19.
It’s also advisable to agree a route/time before you go to meet up and tell someone else your planned route. Always carry a mobile phone, and wear warm and suitable clothing.
