Walk and Talk Club started this petition to Minister of Health

We would like to petitition for a separate hour a day for walking outdoors for the elderly.  Currently, elderly and vulnerable people are too afraid to step outdoors as they worry about being overrun by joggers, bicycles, or too many people using the green spaces at the same time.  As a result, many are staying indoors and this has a huge impact on their physical and mental health.  The hour a day set aside for the elderly would, hopefully, give those that can the confidence to venture out, therefore building their immune systems.  Many older people are living alone and the lockdown is having a negative impact on all apects of their health.  The separate outdoor exercise hours for different age groups is already working well in other countries. We are asking for one hour a day here.
