Advice on the BBC web page confirms that it is still okay to go outdoors for exercise as long as you follow advice to stay 2m apart from others. This advice may change in the future.
Gill and I took advantage of the sunshine today to walk along the Roding Valley Way (picked up at Manor Park). Despite the road traffic noise it is always nice to walk by water. We saw very few people and it was easy to avoid other walkers. We made a point of saying hello to everyone!
Walking along Wanstead flats, we came across these very sensible 3 residents going for a walk with suitable gaps between them (see above).
However, I did see some footballers doing fitness training together, which didn't appear to be very wise in the circumstances.
There are a number of walks, green spaces and parks in Newham and nearby. For many years we have been going for walks in and around the outskirts of London and often we have hardly seen anyone else.
It is really important for physical and mental health that everyone gets out and exercise.
If parks are too popular then they will be closed but in the meanwhile check out :-
