Wellness walk a success | PHOTOS

Organisers were pleased with Sunday's community wellbeing walk at Ceduna.

The walk, hosted by the Ceduna Wellbeing Group and supported by the Far West Suicide Prevention Network, was designed to promote community spirit and wellbeing.

A total of 21 people were involved in the walk, starting at the Ceduna Sailing Club and walking seven kilometres to Pinky Point and back. Following the walk there was a yoga session hosted by Jill Crowther.

It was the second walk organised in 2020 and the group's Hans von Ohle said the morning was a chance for people to connect.

"The day was a very big success for us," he said.

"I think participants got a little more sense of community, which is especially vital in the COVID era when people have been isolated.

"I did notice a lot of conversations being had which was awesome, and that's what it is all about."

Mr von Ohle said the feedback from the event had been positive and that was it was pleasing to see conversations started.

"There is strength in talking," he said.

"It's about opening conversations and it doesn't even have to be about their journey, it can be about anything."

Mr von Ohle said the group was happy to see the second wellness walk attracted more people than the first and noted they were interested in hosting additional walks.

He said they had discussed hosting a walk at Smoky Bay.

"Everybody was keen and asking about the next one," Mr von Ohle said.

"We are thinking about hosting two or three a year in the Ceduna area, and maybe another elsewhere."
