Fleetwood residents have created and launched a new pathway to better mental and physical health.
The Fleetwood Wellbeing Way is a route along the Town’s Esplanade with a series of challenges and tips on staying happier and healthier. From the original idea to the launch on Saturday 8th August, residents have taken the lead, supported by Lancashire Mind, Wyre Borough Council, Lancashire County Council and Healthier Fleetwood.
Victoria Mitchell is a resident and one of the organisers, she said, “We have taken the 'Five Ways to Wellbeing' as our starting point. These are connect to others, be active, keep learning, take notice and give to others.
Along the walk we’ve placed signs with ideas to build resilience, boost wellbeing and improve both mental and physical health.
Residents, and visitors, are encouraged to share how they’ve completed a challenge with the friends and family or on our social media.
We’d also like to hear ideas for future challenges which will help create a healthier, supportive and caring community.”
The route of the Fleetwood Wellbeing way begins and ends with 2 large signs, one is opposite the Sea Cadets base, by Beach Road, the other opposite on the old Pier site. In between are the 5 ‘challenge signs’, displayed on the coastal side bus stops.
