Overton Walking for Health
On Monday 20 July, Overton Hampshire held their small led walking for health.
They say “We’ve had great feedback from walkers and walk leaders and these small led walks will be continuing fortnightly in August. Monday proved a great success and I suspect that August dates are fully booked already.
The social distancing of 2 meters was strictly kept both on, around the registration point, and on the walks. Plus one walk leader signed everyone in so only one person handled the pen.
Here’s some feedback, from a walker and a walk leader on different walks.
“What a super walk this morning. The weather was perfect and we had great company in our group of 5. It really couldn’t have been better and everybody made a point of thanking Maureen for leading such a splendid group. We had no difficulty maintaining social distancing and there was plenty of animated conversation. A thoroughly enjoyable morning and I can hardly wait two weeks for the next one. Thank you, Denise. “
“We enjoyed our walk and guest walker Matthew from Basingstoke was appreciative of the Overton scenery. John was his usual self striding out“
We had 24 walkers and 5 walk leaders so this needed a lot of careful planning, but we proved that it can work in the right circumstances. “
