Walking Rugby has taken off throughout Wales in the last 12 months and is benefitting participants in more ways than one. Te participants – male and female of all ages and abilities including one man who lost his sight 13 years ago – talk of clear benefits to their physical health and crucially, their mental health through being involved in the groups. Te number of Walking Rugby groups in Wales grew organically from two in December 2018 to 16 just twelve months later and new groups are starting up all the time. A range of organisations from rugby clubs to charities, Health Boards and third sector bodies are seeing the benefit of the inclusive rugby format and engaging more than 300 participants on a weekly basis. While the format is fully inclusive

genders and abilities, its main appeal is to Wales’ older and socially isolated population. With more than 877 000 people over 60 in Wales (just under 30% of the population), and that figure set to rise to over one million by 2030*, social isolation and mental health issues are a real issue. Based on this evidence, it is no surprise that some GPs are now referring


patients to Walking Rugby for the physical and social benefits it brings. Greg Woods, WRU Entreprise Manager said, “Anyone can play Walking Rugby, whether you’re a lapsed rugby player or new to the game. It’s a social, enjoyable activity with obvious physical and mental health benefits. Tere is clearly a growing demand for more Walking Rugby opportunities


around Wales and we are working with the current groups and a wide range of other partners to not only cater for that demand but provide support to the volunteers running the clubs and work with others to set up new outlets.” If you want

The biggest selling classical artist of the century, Katherine Jenkins OBE, announced the release of her 14th studio album, ‘Cinema Paradiso’ - available from Friday 17th April via Decca Records. Comprised of 15 iconic tracks, ‘Cinema Paradiso’ is a collection of unforgettable songs from some of the world’s best loved movie moments including; ‘Moon River’ from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Pinocchio’s ‘When You Wish Upon A Star’, ‘Tonight’ from West Side Story, featuring fellow Welsh star, Luke Evans, as well as themes from Schindler’s List, Lord of the Rings and Dances with Wolves.
