Free cuppa for lunchtime leg stretchers

A scheme to get people active in Lincoln is lunging into a new ‘Lunchtime Leg Stretch’ initiative and rewarding participants with a free Costa coffee.

The 20-munite walk will take place on Friday, May 25 at 12:30pm.

It will lead ‘stretchers’ from the Brayford Odeon, along the Fossdyke Canal and back again before giving them a chance to relax and destress with a coffee.

A County Council Initiative, Access Lincoln aims to help residents,visitors and commuters alike to lead healthier lifestyles, save time and money and choose between a range of travel options.

Alison Mackfall, Access Lincoln project co-ordinator, said:

“Not only does walking help you feel fitter, healthier and brighter, it’s also a great way to de-stress.

So if you’ve had a tough morning in the office, the Lunchtime Leg Stretch is the ideal way to clear your head.

“It can also be a chance to catch up with old friends and perhaps meet some new ones.

“So take the chance to do something different with your lunch hour and come along.”
