#GetOutThere initiative is launched
Health Improvement Commission launches #GetOutThere initiative to keep Guernsey moving.
Our #GetOutThere and Walk This Way campaigns aim to keep people active as we deal with the end of the first wave of COVID-19 and adjust to a new normal.
During lockdown lots of us took advantage of the 2 hour exercise time by building walking, cycling, swimming or other activities into our routines. Being active most days became important for many. This motivation is too good to lose!
#GetOutThere messages will be promoted across social media and link with 16 Walk This Way signs around St Peter Port which show the distance, time and number of steps taken on short walks that can be built into daily life as we move around St Peter Port and St Sampson.
All walks can be found on the interactive map.
Venues include Salerie Corner, Rouge Rue, Footes Lane and Val de Terres. The idea is to inspire people to keep physical activity as part of their daily routines as we create our new normal.
Watch out for our #GetOutThere on social media! Please share and like our posts and inspire others by sharing your experiences of adding a short walk to your day.
We're very grateful to the Co-op Helping Hands Fund which sponsored the signboards and Digimap who created the interactive map.
