Engage Somerset: A breath of fresh air

Engage Somerset Pluss 15 February 2022
Setting off from Glastonbury

The team from Engage Somerset from Pluss put their best feet forward as they set off on one of their new wellbeing walks.

The six month Engage Somerset project was launched in January 2022 to help 500 people, who are 18 years old or over, live in the county and are not in paid work to – get fit.

If you live in ChardHighbridge or Glastonbury, it may be just the thing to help you feel good and be more empowered on your journey to employment.

You can find out much more about the project, and how to get involved, by using the link at the bottom of this page.

But before you get clicking, take a look at some of the photos from the first walks which took place in Glastonbury and Highbridge on Monday 14th February, 2022 – Valentine’s Day: what a great day to look after your heart!
