Walkers in Warwick district can now take part in the district’s first e-walk and virtual coffee group after a successful pilot from Clarendon Park Walkers and local GP surgery, Clarendon Lodge Medical Practice.
Members of the newly christened ‘Clarendon Park E-Walkers’ head out on a solo walk in their local area from 11am every Thursday, the usual time that the Clarendon Park Walkers would meet. They then virtually meet in a WhatsApp group in the afternoon to chat over a cup of tea or coffee, maintaining one of the core goals of Walking for Health: reducing social isolation.
The new way of walking has been established amid the Coronavirus pandemic, with social distancing making it impossible for walking groups to meet in their normal way.
All residents are encouraged to take part and can share their walks by joining the Walking for Health in Warwick District Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/221238892206331/
Though all normal walks are currently suspended, information on the District’s walks and the latest updates can be found at www.warwickdc.gov.uk/walkingforhealth
