There was one main theme that kept cropping up amongst the intrepid walkers who attended this Springboard event - how good it felt to  meet up somewhere outdoors, enjoy the good views and be able to socialise.

When Teresa, our Springboard Coordinator, arrived at Norfolk Park, she found that everybody else had arrived early and had already done much of their walking, so they were mostly happy to sit in the outdoor seating area putting the world to rights, sharing life stories and taking in the view of the city. 

There was a definite sense of relief to be away from the stresses of the news for a while - and to be outdoors, after what seems like the eternity of living through a pandemic.
