Walking with Wheels
This project will build upon work already being undertaken through the existing National Park Authority ‘Walkability’ Project, which is partly funded by Hywel Dda Health Trust and encourages people with limited mobility to get out and enjoy the countryside. ‘Walking with Wheels’ will increase the number of people participating in organised walks and events and reduce some of the barriers the less mobile have to overcome in order to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors by: 1.Providing an electric mobility scooter at both Tenby and Newport Visitor Centres 2.Developing a circular mobility path at St Davids Airfield 3.Developing a series of suitable 'walks' in these locations 4.Providing additional transport capable of carrying wheelchairs for mobility walks to key locations 5.Providing suitably qualified and experience 'walk' leaders It will enable residents and visitors who feel they are excluded due to their health and mobility problems to enjoy the outdoors with potential benefits for their physical and mental well being as well and to develop new social connections. Some of the organised walks will introduce the participants to areas of the National Park with significant biodiversity and historical interest and the leaflets for the walks will include points of interest en route.
