January 2021 -Update

Another year for walking football...eventually.

It's been a sad start to the year for many but we're still here,  As far as we know all of our lovely walking football family are fit and well.  Feel free to check in and update us all as to your doings!  

We are currently hoping that after this lockdown, maybe April time, it will be light enough to start outdoor sessions again, in the evening. Obviously this is all 'depending' but we do have a plan and we are intending to start back as soon as we feel its safe to do so.

The FA have not updated their guidance to us since the start of December but they have issued more guidance on the rules of WF for refs to follow. 

The Cornwall WF committee are not meeting at present so there are no tournaments planned for 2021 and all of the WFA, IWFF and Welsh WF tournaments have been cancelled and are pending new dates.

We will post here when we have news but otherwise we are just living quietly and waiting for everyone to get vaccinated....we were even thinking that given the order people will be vaccinated, walking football should be the first sport to be able to fully resume in the country!

Safe safe everyone.

Health and Wellbeing 

Staying Happy and Healthy is Important 

It's all to easy to sit at home all day and become chair bound and getting physically and emotionally weaker and more isolated. We believe that Walking Football is part of the answer but it takes more than that. 

We all need to be proactive about our health and well being. We are 'fighting the tide' and have to get as physically and mentally tough as we can.

Being of a 'certain age' means that sometimes we find talking about health and emotional wellbeing quite difficult. Below you will find some links to pages which you might find useful. We are not endorsing any sites or products, just giving our wonderful community a choice and voice. 

So let's start with the really important stuff...
