Stay home. Stay safe.

Guidance is to exercise locally.

Getting outside for exercise is of course important, but please don't take any unnecessary risks, especially in the cold and icy weather.

By staying safe and staying local you can help reduce the pressure on our emergency services.

Help keep our emergency staff and hospital beds free for those that need them most.
