Residents asked to exercise in local areas during lockdown

Denbighshire residents are being encouraged to exercise in their local areas during the upcoming lockdown.

As part of the Welsh Government’s ‘firebreak’ lockdown which starts at 6pm on Friday (October 23) residents are asked not to travel to exercise or visit beauty spots in the county such as Loggerheads and Moel Famau country parks.

People are advised to take exercise from their homes and the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB will be posting ideas for local walks throughout the lockdown period on its social media account.

Cllr Tony Thomas, the Council’s Lead Member for Housing and Communities, said: “During the lockdown residents are asked not to travel to exercise so we are encouraging residents to take advantage of their local areas.

“Exercise is vitally important for everyone’s wellbeing and from the coastal areas with their beaches to the rural areas of the county there are a wealth of local walks and opportunities for exercise.

“We are encouraging residents to take advantage of their local area, to exercise from home and to continue to practice social distancing and good hygiene to stop the spread of the virus and protect our communities.”

Residents are advised that the Countryside Centre at Loggerheads Country Park will be closed during the lockdown.
