Survey seeks favourite ways to exercise in the Cotswolds

Cotswold District Council is asking its residents about exercise, activity and their local leisure centres and facilities.

Perhaps you’re a cyclist, a swimmer or a climber? Maybe you enjoy walks in the countryside with your family or walking to work? Do you take part in online fitness classes? Perhaps you’re keen to do all these things but you struggle to find the time?

To understand local attitudes towards health and fitness the council has created a short online survey.

The survey asks some questions about the activities you have been doing before and during the COVID-19 lockdown, and how you think this might change in the future.

Responses to the survey will help the council to understand more about the different barriers that can prevent people from being active and using their local leisure centres, and what the council can do to support and encourage people to lead more active and healthy lives.

Cllr Jenny Forde, Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing said, “Whether you take part in regular physical activities or not, we’d like to hear from everyone about their routines, and attitudes towards exercise and fitness.

“This is a perfect opportunity for residents to help shape the future of exercise and fitness where they live. Your feedback will help us to understand local trends and needs, and assist us with our forward planning. It only takes about five minutes to complete the survey online so please take part today.”

The closing date is 17th July 2020.
