Getting Together and Keeping Fit

Despite the delay to the relaxing of restrictions, SI Cannock and District members were determined to get together safely with the added advantage of taking some exercise on our beautiful Cannock Chase!

Last Tuesday (21st June), many members enjoyed a guided walk in our local Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. One even brought her dogs along! This was the first of the wellbeing events that have been arranged in collaboration with Inspiring Healthy Lifestyles (IHL), a charity which, on behalf of Cannock Chase Council offers a wide range of activities to the community to improve their health and wellbeing. Just 30 minutes of exercise per day have huge physical and mental health benefits

They were blessed with perfect weather conditions, ideal for a walk with friends, some of whom hadn’t met face to face for months. They were given a challenge; to take two photographs, one that shared the wonders of Cannock Chase, the other that ‘made their heart sing’ and everyone took the task very seriously resulting in some stunning shots.

SI Cannock President Jackie Prince said ‘we may have had to postpone our formal meetings a little longer, but are so grateful for the opportunity to meet outdoors and catch up with each other whilst improving our fitness’.

At the end of the walk everyone said how much they had enjoyed themselves and how much better they felt after some exercise out in the fresh air and walking with friends.
