Still time to share your views on the Exeter Green Circle

Share your views on the Exeter Green Circle

There is still time to complete the Green Circle survey and be in with a chance of winning one of ten £35 InExeter vouchers, just in time for the festive season.

The survey is organised by Live and Move, the team working to help people in Exeter and Cranbrook to be more active. It is an opportunity to find out how many people use the Green Circle, and what they use it for.

Some sections of the 12-mile circular route around Exeter, which takes in five valley parks, are well-used but some people in the city still don’t know much about it.

Cllr Duncan Wood, Lead Councillor for Leisure Services and Physical Activity, said it’s important to hear from as many people as possible.

He said: “Green space is so important to us all. Here in Exeter we are fortunate to have more of it than in many other cities. Labour are keen to protect it and make sure it is open to all. By listening to the views of residents, regardless of whether or not they use the Green Circle, we can help to make sure that it really does provide something for everybody.”

Wellbeing Exeter community physical activity organiser Rhian Hawthorne said the Green Circle is a vital space and that if people aren’t sure how to access it, help is available.

“Whether you are just starting to think about physical exercise, or are a keen walker already, the Green Circle is the perfect place to take in the sights and sounds of nature around the city and improve your physical and mental wellbeing. The route provides access to picturesque countryside, historic buildings and quiet lanes and meadows,” she said.

“Just 20 minutes of exercise a day can boost self-esteem, improve your mood, enhance your sleep and give you more energy. So if you are looking to move more, step onto the Green Circle, route and enjoy this great local resource for health and wellbeing.

“Even if you have never set foot on the Green Circle, you can still provide valuable input by completing the survey and use it to find out more about the section nearest to where you live. Whether you’re keen to walk, cycle or you simply want somewhere to play and have a kickabout, this space is yours and we are here to help you to use it.”
