With everyone staying in their bubble during the lockdown, our local streets have more people walking and cycling for physical activity and getting to the local supermarket. Communities across the country have found creative ways to encourage more local physical exercise. The placement of teddy bears, and later Easter egg pictures, in windows as a form of physically distant scavenger hunt have been fun for big and little kids alike. Many have used chalk on the ground to draw pictures, write words of encouragement or develop obstacle courses for local residents. If you’ve doing anything active in your neighbourhood to encourage exercise, like walking etc, using our currently quiet streets, please share your story with us. Just email email@example.com with a story from say 100 words with one image and if published you could win a free six month subscription or extension to Walking New Zealand magazine. Include your name and postal address. Here are what some readers have been doing during the lockdown.
