Getting around Withernsea

Wed, 19 Feb 2020

Active Withernsea will be holding its next Tell Us More session on Tuesday, 25 February from 9.30-11am and 5-7pm upstairs at the SHoRes Centre, Withernsea, and this month's theme is Getting Around Withernsea.

Come and tell Active Withernsea about how you get around Withernsea, whether it's by walking, cycling, using scooters, transport or if you have any ideas or frustrations.

The monthly "Tell Us More" sessions are driven by the themes which come up in conversations with people who live in Withernsea and this unique approach ensures that the issues which are important to the community are heard and that wider collaborative partnerships understand local issues.

Angela Williams, Active Withernsea lead, said: "Getting around Withernsea means so many different things to different people.

"For some people, they love the freedom of cycling and for others they find that getting to the shops is much more difficult for them than it used to be.

"It's important we understand more about this issue so we can feed the information and ideas in to our programme."

Active Withernsea is one of 12 Local Delivery Pilot (LDP) areas which are supported by Sport England.

The pilot aims to work collaboratively with local community partners to identify and co-create better ways to address the stubborn inequalities and barriers which stop people from being active.

Everyone is welcome to the drop-in events and refreshments will be available. The venue is fully accessible to all.
