Coronavirus (COVID-19): updates and advice.

This 2021 we will be offering lots of opportunities for you and your family to get active in the great outdoors across East Dorset and local areas.

The Activate Coast and Greenspace programme aims to encourage people to get more active through a wide range of coast and countryside based activities. When it comes to exercise, you can’t beat getting out and about in the fresh air!

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, all activities follow social distancing guidelines. It is essential that you book onto the activity in advance and to be aware of COVID-19 restrictions that may be in place at time of booking.

It is hoped that our free health walks and health cycle rides will begin to restart from May 2021. Exact start dates for each activity will follow soon with some locations re-starting later than others. Bookings will open here two weeks in advance of activities starting.

Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PARQ)

All new and returning participants are required to complete an annual Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PARQ) before attending a Health Walk or Health cycle ride.

If you have any specific queries relating to the activities or are interested in volunteering, please contact us.
