Outdoor activities

I support others suggestions that outdoor activities needs to be expanded. Golf, even if club house remain closed, being able to go hill walking, climbing which can all be done with social distancing.

Why the contribution is important

Outdoor exercise is very important for general well being both physical and mental.

    Absolutely agree. There are many articles like this one, https://www.sciencedaily.com/[…]/200331162314.htm that proves that regular exercise improves the bodies immunity.

    Our government should be encouraging people to exercise whilst still maintaining social distancing. It will have many other benefits as well. It will improve mental health and the outdoors will certainly have a positive effect of people. Again, much evidence to support that. We should make this a priority.

    I have been working on an app that can help people boost their immune systems but due to a lack of funding it is 3 months away from being completed. I hope to get it done so it can help people play their part on all of this.

    Agree - but this goes well beyond golf and hillwalking. Needs consideration of how suitable spaces are provided for people in high density housing areas and who may not have private gardens and /or quality greenspaces nearby. Or who find their access to good places interrupted by advice not to use public transport or facilities being closed when they do manage to get there.
