Nigel led our first socially distanced walk on Wednesday 19 August with a 3-mile walk out to Belton and back via Alkington Road. There was some rain but there were no dramas and it was all very manageable. Peter was the back marker and everyone was glad to be out in the Shropshire countryside again. We hope that the short walks will be back soon. Please note that the new meeting point is at the back of the Civic Centre in the car park and that the centre toilets are now open.
I am very excited to announce that we now have proper football goal posts at our Walking Football group on Tuesdays at 2pm, Civic Centre, thanks to the amazingly kind people at “the Soccer Store” based in Crewe!
For over a year now we have been struggling using stacks of chairs as goal posts which has not been ideal. We couldn’t afford to buy any ourselves and provision of daytime leisure activities in Whitchurch is poor. There are no arguments now over whether it hit an imaginary cross bar – we actually have a cross bar! Thanks to “the Soccer Store” the existing players – and hopefully new ones – can continue to benefit physically and socially from the sessions. So far we have seen some serious weight loss, improvements in strength and energy, and a boost in confidence that led to an apprenticeship ending in a full time job! Our new football nets will make the activity more attractive to new players and allow the life enriching process to continue. In a nutshell – it makes you feel good!
On behalf of all the players I’d like to say a huge Thank You to the Soccer Store
