“It’s been great to be outdoors” “I never thought I’d feel this fit after what I went through.” “It’s good for your health, it’s good company and good exercise.” These are just some of the testimonials made by users of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s Walkability Project in a new promotional video.
The project, which is part-funded by a Support for Life grant obtained by the Friends of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, helps people of all abilities to enjoy the spectacular countryside and coast around them.
The new video, created by film maker Mark Bond, features a snapshot of the wide range of groups who make use of the project, detailing their experiences and explaining how being part of Walkability has benefited them.
Walkability project co-ordinator Paul Casson said: “This video provides several great examples of what Walkability is all about, helping people of all abilities get out and about into the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside.
“The aim is to use the money and resources to help local people engage in walking as an activity to improve their health and wellbeing in this world-class landscape. We hope the video will encourage more people to come forward to make use of the Walkability Project and discover these benefits for themselves.”
Since July 2011 Walkability has supported over 600 groups, reaching over 6000 participants at 150 venues around Pembrokeshire.
The project has also trained a number of walk leaders so that even more people are able to benefit from the walking opportunities on offer.
