Walking football raises spirits

Last updated: 15 October, 2021

Project in Clydach Vale helping people get healthy.

Led by volunteer coach Rob Jones, The Cambrian Village Trust walking football project was set up in 2018.  

The scheme peaked with a couple of well-attended regular weekly sessions before the pandemic struck.  

The latter stages of 2020 had the throng re-unite while new faces also came on board before another lockdown ended that era of exercise. 

Detailed planning, revived acquaintances and a fresh interest has led to a successful 2021 return. After a lengthy lay off, the group are back on a Sunday, 11am to midday at the 3G, Clydach Vale. We run alongside other activities including walking rugby. 

  The activity is part of a range of services in the community that are being highlighted as part of Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board’s #YourLocalTeam campaign.    The campaign raises awareness of the professionals and activities in the community that can help patients without the need to go to the GP.
